The design was inspired by the structure of a bio molecular formula. As concept, it combinines land and historic values with modern design and functionality. The building embraces the curving landscape. The rear part of the complex along with the one story garage are below grade and above the water table, minimizing the building profile and adding to its full integration with the site. This approach also compliments the existing historic buildings. The hip roofs and cornered skylights of the new structure reflect the old ones in a modern, yet discrete way, while the glass tropical garden enclosure with panoramic elevator, northern skylights and integrated sun screen photovoltaic cells acting as active and passive solar devices to the south represent sustainable 21st century building technology. The underground parking garage, stretching under the building perimeter, houses 291 cars and allows for the preservation of a major portion of the existing road at the carriage house along with a large portion of the existing trees on site. This approach minimizes the disruption of the site along with the extended convenience of more indoor parking, conditioned by the construction budget.
