(Click image to view description)
The house was built using the restraint found in early Spanish houses, such as the use of glass hidden between the columns in the tower and using large areas of stucco with few windows, which have custom iron grilles. The studded garage doors are concealed behind two rows of arches to disguise that the fact that the house was built after the advent of the automobile.
