The New Villa


That very first image graced the cover of Elegant Homes, and needless to say, the magazine was mine.  The home belongs to architect Bill Bocken and his landscape architect partner Paul Adams.  They call it a new villa, because it's a contemporary twist on the traditional retreat! They designed a home around the outdoors, so that every room had an amazing view of the surrounding gardens, that also allowed for beautiful breezes and light to filter in.  Apparently they can't their guests to leave the kitchen or the Pavilion.
