Modern beautiful home with reflecting ponds


This AIA award winning home resides at The Strand in Dana Point, California. A series of overlapping reflecting ponds within the home’s central courtyard instills a sense of meditation and retreat where one can contemplate the sky and ocean. Outdoor and indoor living is orchestrated by balancing views with privacy, communal space with intimacy.
