Designed to integrate within the mid-century modernist elements throughout the landscape and home, the retreat’s large sliding glass doors are centered on the pool and the whole unit cantilevered over stone retaining walls that terrace down through the valley.

The retreat also includes a vertical trellis that divides the floor to ceiling windows between the bath and lounge area, while features such as a 180 swivel TV and see through ethanol fireplace are able to be accessed from both spaces.
