This 10,500-square-foot house wraps around the top of a hill in RSF. The angled roofs and stairs leading into the pool emphasize the stepping quality of the design as it moves down the hillside.

19,000 gallons
5.5 feet deep
2,800 gallon reflecting pond

The 1-foot-deep reflecting pond begins at the edge of the house, and was designed as an extension of the main living room. From there, the water appears to flow into the spa, which then spills over into the pool, which extends to the garden. In reality, the pond, spa, and pool waters are all kept separate, but the idea of water flowing from the house to the garden makes for some seriously good chi.
