The structural components of natural wood and stone link this contemporary tree house to its surroundings. Tucked tightly into the sheltering trees, Villa Encantada gazes out at the distance like a watchful falcon. The ceiling to floor windows are recessed under wide eaves, sheltering the inside space from direct midday sun, all the while inviting the expansive ‘vistas’ inside.
Key design features are enriched by the placement of multi-textured plants softening the planes of the functional stone and iron. Unique specimen vines and shrubs integrate the design elements, showing off their soft color and texture against the angular planes of the home.
Sculptural lines of the outdoor shower echo the design elements of the home, tying the inside and outside together. The shimmering pool against the lush jungle draws the eye to the dramatic view of the distant Pacific ocean. Ah, what pleasure it is to live the enchanted life.
