Saratoga, CA 2

Private Residence, Saratoga, CA
Inspired by the Indian style, the harmony of space and eastern forms are interwoven with regional traditions. Islamic foliated style arches, carved stone pillars and screens (jalis), and complex vaulted ceilings recall the Mughal forms of India. Special features of the 8,200 S.F. house include a full basement with wine cellar and home theatre, semi-circular stair, elevator, covered exterior porches, and large rooftop deck. An expansive folding French door system allows the living space to open completely to the outdoors.
