Beautiful in so many ways. Check out:

- the sunken pool in the courtyard

- the way the new, light structure meets the old, heavy one

- contrast between light and dark, color and no color, plain and detailed

- the tubular kitchen hood (hoods are usually ugly, so this is refreshing)

Our office is currently designing a modern tansu-like storage area under a stair for a client in California, and I see that Andrew Maynard has a similar treatment under his scissor stair.
