The first villa to be completed – the spec? An opulent yet comfortable family home for the parents.  Built-in units with crystal, hand painted glass and stainless steel detail had to be designed around the client’s own imported furniture. An exciting feature, from a design, construction and visual perspective, is the curved floating staircase (subsequently copied in the other three villas). Treads that were not uniform and a curve that was not an exact radius required some creative thinking – a thrill for Karen.
