In View From The Top, writer Maile Pingel details this hilltop home designed to change with the seasons.  Tasked with full ground-up architecture and interior design, our team carefully studied the home’s surroundings to capture bright sunshine and leafy shade, cool breezes and of course the sweeping, stunning views of both country and city. A soft, shimmery neutral palette captures the changing light throughout the day, creating a multi-sensory experience that the homeowners adore.
