What you build when......

You come from the UK and want nothing more to do with grey or tudor influences and you want a party house!

Construction here is basically all concrete and brick a bit more major to adjust when you change your mind. Friend Tracey trustingly let me remove two concrete staircases that looked like fire escapes. A beautiful two story space just cried out for the sweep of a semi circular stair.

Visions of the Chatelaine gliding down the stairs with maribou trim on her satin slippers to pick a breakfast mango from the tree in the garden danced through our heads.  I won't ruin the staircase picture with the description of the realities of life!

Her stairway to the stars leads to the master bedroom from the very large dressing room. It then continues on to the roof garden.
