Traditional textures such as rough-cut stone and weathered wood blend with more contemporary elements ranging from smooth-trowel stucco, powder-coated metal, and glass. A second phase of construction, completed three years later, transformed the segmented kitchen and dining area into an open plan concept with a seamless connection to the lush courtyard oasis.
