So when they dreamt of building a house, it was more a bar with complementary rooms.The living and the kitchen are complementary areas to the activities that revolve around the bar, snacks, watching the games, maybe playing some video games, pinball, juke box, sports memorabilia,etc. The dinning, well , eventually they had to invite the family for a formal dinner (maybe christmas). Then there is the family room and the gym.

They both overlook the bar in the open to below.the gym has a perfect view to the mountains and ocean. It is combined with a studio/reading area. So they can both share time while she exercises. The main entrance,located at the second story of the house, opens to the bar. It was a requirement that when the guests came in the first view was the bar. And the wall that is right above the entrance, at one end of the open to below, is planned to be a projection area for games.

The rooms: the main bedroom had to be a nupcial suite, connected to a large outdoor terrace, as well as the walk in closet and the bathroom. All the speces share the same view. For the privacy , they decided they wanted a filter. The first, being in the third story with a wonderful view, and the second, you had to cross the studio/ gym to reach the stairs. The kid bedroom and the guest bedroom are in the second floor.

The kid’s bedroom, was planned as an adventure/tree house efect. So it protrudes from the house and that views of the trees and the mountains give this effect of a separate game area. It had to be a special place, for the weekend visits. A house talks about their playfulness as a family, the dedication of their work and the serioussness with which they commit to their tasks and dreams. The openness to friends and the provacy they need to grow as a family and individuals.
