Meier wanted to create a programmatic separation between public and private areas. The clear house glazing captures the interior and mother nature's reflection, combining them into a picturesque. Mr and Mrs.Acosta have recently purchased The Smith House and have requested our firm to make some adjustments to their new home.

The Acosta family have recently purchased the Smith House and have requested our firm to make some adjustments to their new home. Their idea is to have a very open space concept with their family room. They consider the family room last the "heart of their new home. There may be be several changes that needs to be taken care of; the family understands the house's originality and doesn't wish to change any of that but just a few minor additions. The Acosta family is looking forward to living in a place where there is peace and they can relax their mind off.  Our job is to come with a design that keeps the integrity of Meier's design and fulfill the family's request.
