Aging in Zen

The requirement for the owners’ dream home was that it have a "Zen" atmosphere and allow them to age in place. The "Zen" atmosphere was accomplished using water and fire features, a yoga room, and an indoor/outdoor floor plan creating a connection with the outdoors. Flowing water and a garden fountain are used in the main entrance. Master suites on both levels, the elevator, media room, library, and rear entrance from the detached garage were designed for aging in place.
