While curvy and glossy in design, the low-lying villas seem to blend effortlessly into the greenery that surrounds them. Tall tropical hardwood trees flank the estate, allowing it to melt into the plot of land even more. The meandering paths and ramps that connect the spaces dip down to a garage at the lowest level and then up to a peaceful pool and finally to the homes themselves.

The interiors have the same fluid lines that the exteriors do, and have sloped floor to ceiling windows for daylight. Just like the curvy levels outside, some rooms within the home dip down to create nooks for other rooms. Fiber-reinforced plastic and Corian are some of the materials being considered for the interior elements and glazing.
