Collaborating closely with the owners, Butler Armsden settled on a courtyard scheme that embraces the site, maximizing wonderful views and enhancing the natural indoor/outdoor living environment. Materials were chosen for their elegant and timelessness. The exterior showcases stucco on the walls and chimneys, steel windows and doors topped off with a copper roof. The interior is finished with natural woods, stone and plaster. Butler Armsden also oversaw the selection of all interiors furnishings and finishes.
