About Red Oak
Innovative Design Meets Nature
Curved glass walls define the main residence, introducing a gentle contrast to the sharp angles of the floating roof. These walls not only soften the architectural lines but also provide uninterrupted views and a strong connection to the outdoors. Furthermore, the ‘butterfly’ roof over the living area beautifully echoes the flowing water that surrounds the home.
A Haven for Multi-Generational Living
Three separate guest casitas, linked by a shared roof, offer a welcoming space for families spanning generations. A walkway, seemingly suspended over water, connects these spaces while blending seamlessly with the tranquil landscaping. Together, the casitas and the main house intricately navigate the land, paying homage to the mature red oak trees and the property’s water features.
