The Owner requested a classical-style grand house. We achieved this by setting the house back with a long driveway approach to the front to enhance the grand sense of arrival. For the classical style, we chose the highest order, the Corinthian order, as that is the most affluent with its decorative capitals with floral motifs, for the front columns are arranged and ordered in perfect proportion and symmetry to give the classical style the respect it deserves. The interiors, however, are modern in keeping with the Owner’s lifestyle. The material palette for the interiors is subtle with soft hues & tones, and so appropriate for the Owner’s incredible collection of modern contemporary art.
