The owners of a beautiful piece of land in Orange County had worked on ideas about their future home for a long time, and arrived in our office with a clear vision of the spaces and adjacencies they wished for in their new house. They had not yet been able to imagine the qualities of each room or the relationship of the structure as a whole to the site. Should the parcels comprising the lot be recombined? How would one enter the site and approach the house? Where should the pond be located so that it could be viewed from the interior and be easily accessed for outdoor enjoyment? Was there a good location for a future guesthouse?
