The balcony overlooking the pool has
overlapping wooden decking and Corten
steel planters: Mexican snowballs
(Echeveria elegans) on the ground
plane and Elephant's foot (Beaucarnea
recurvate) in the raised planter. The
planters (left) feature topiary boxwoods
(Buxus sempervirens), with African iris in
the planters closest to the home.
The residents can access the sauna/
solarium in the typical manner (via a
door) or from the pool via an underwater
passage. A bed of bamboo orchids
(Arundina graminifolia) separates the
access stairway from the lap pool.
