Main House and Guest House

Main House and Guest House

Our clients asked us to design a guest house while thinking about the big picture which included a main house, a guest house, and a garage.  We were in the middle of the design phase when they were transferred to Hong Kong.  The project continued, as we worked long distance to iron out the details.  The guest house/pool house then became home base for periodic visits while we worked on the main house and the garage.  Eventually, they came home to their compound, and it feels like they never left.
