The ability to step back and look at the big picture is a luxury, particularly for anybody running his or her own company.
The perfect living environment for a young family
The perfect living environment for a young family, this 9,694-square-foot custom home in Brentwood, Calif., blends natural materials with high-tech features. Architect Rocky Rockefeller calls it a modern Craftsman — a contemporary California interpretation of the Craftsman style that emphasizes meticulous detailing, warm woods and clean lines. In the living room, sliding glass walls, corner glass and clerestory windows nearly erase the boundary between interior and exterior space. Deep roof overhangs help reduce heat gain from the sun.
Builder: Fischer Construction, Los Angeles, Calif.
