Client : Mr. Manny & Mrs. Juliana Ramirez
Program-Scale : Variance free exterior renovation and interior remodel of the existing 2- story CBS 8,000 SF Residence. New resort-style Pool, spa, and Cabana, entertainment terraces, adjoining sports court. 6,300 SF Pool+Cabana
Building Type : Residential Single-Family
Status : Completed
Project Scope : Extensive remodeling of the existing 2-story residence with integrated lake views with the goal to create the pool and cabana as one integrated experience and structure to better unify the yards and main house with the adjoining lake. The Cabana is a 2300 SF bridge building spanning 76' along and across the main pool to shaded outdoor dining, bars and lounge areas along the pool as well as frame and align the best perspective views from the main house out along the grand infinity pool’s main axis, to the estate’s lake beyond. The Cabana includes a window walled party room, summer kitchen, bar, bath and surrounding covered terraces under expansive roof and trellis overhangs. All facades and flat roof of the concrete frame structure is finished with natural composite wood board Resysta and stained a Burmese teak color. The inclined wall columns and roof soffits frame the viewing axis from the main house out to the lake and create a sculptural finish and refined profile to the living space in the landscape. The fully automated, 4000 SF raised infinity edge pool is ‘L’ shaped and wraps around the Cabana to form a shallow wet beach area of blue and gold glass tiles with the ‘floating’ jacuzzi spa. The 100' main exercise pool oriented towards the lake, culminates on a 4 fountain jet basin and waterfall. Imported silver-grey limestone terraces, integrated landscaping, scene set lighting, and surround sound complete the composition
