A multi-gabled house in an exclusive estate.

Exclusive homes often seem designed for photographic purposes and inhabitable only by non-humans.  Other homes exude comfy family living with little said for design.  Others, like this home retain their sophistication in a manner that is easy to wear. Undeniably smart and internationally sophisticated it retains important references to local architecture, is conscious of local weather patterns.  Its sophistication can be found in skirting details, handrails, terraced gardens and other architectural devices used to raise the occupants daily living -  to a level of ease and grace in a turbulent city -  like meditation would.   An inventive use of a basement increases the available land size while allowing for multiple cars and other utilities under the house.
