Fans of the Swatt Miers Architects I will see this design as an OZ residence and will know who designed it without knowing. These great architects are using many of the same concepts in their designs across California, creating a more open concept, and using glass and wood in their designs. The Oz residence is located in Silicon Valley, California, USA.
This particular design takes advantage of much of the wood toned style in this house but leaves it out of the kitchen. Here in this special room it is run with white counters, cupboards and appliances. The wood tone plays a role around the edges of the large doors that lead to the terrace and in the ceiling beams above the counters.
The back yard is made in layers with the pool and deck being the first things you see when you step outside. This space has plenty of space for sunbathing and tanning with areas near the house for shade. Go beyond the pool area and there is a garden at the end of a few steps, also with a garden.
In the house next to the kitchen there is a large dining area with no wall sections that lead into the living room. This is the open concept and is complemented by large windows on either side of the house that let in lots of natural light.
The living room almost looks like a separate room as you have to go inside. The upper floor contains a glass corridor that consists of a glass floor and walls but offers great views of the house from inside and out.
