William Duterte's complex design incorporates five different interior levels to define the home, allowing for interesting site lines wherever you may be in the dwelling.
The master bedroom / bathroom suite incorporates an indoor garden below a large skylight. A washed stone pathway leads to the open air shower and immense soaking tub, both are gently shaded by a 14' ficus tree. A spiral staircase winds it's way up to the sleeping loft, which overlooks the garden and above it all is a peaked exposed beam and golden bamboo ceiling complete with dimmable lighting and ceiling fan. It's easy to see the Asian and tropical influences in this sector of the home.
The kitchen owes its floor plan to the mid-west farm kitchen where the table is the anchoring element. A Wolf restaurant oven is original to the kitchen, but a recent renovation brought honed granite counters, mirrored backslashes, a wine storage unit and a Viking stainless steel refrigerator/freezer into use.
This eclectic home has provided a wonderful place for their children to grow up and after all these years has remained an interesting and exciting space. Exactly as it's designer/builder had hoped.
