South-American Ipe wood conceals the 2-car garage and is again seen near floating steps that lead you over a Zen-like pond adjacent to a cascading water feature set on an Oolite stone backdrop. Keeping with the modern design, the architects created a cube-like second-story bedroom balcony made of Ipe that floats above a reflecting pond adding a geometric effect the residence.
