The old midcentury Hollywood style we’ve all come to know and love is actually a combination of many décor movements including neoclassical and art deco. In many ways it was a style marked by other styles.

The area separated by the moving glass walls also contains a library and space for children’s activity room with a huge whiteboard on one of the walls. By using the glass doors the living space can be separated from this area as well and hence the noise can be kept out whenever needed while still keeping an eye on the kids!
Designed by Alberto Kalach the interiors match the extravagant exterior inch for inch as they are covered in wood which matches the shade of the stone used outside.

One of the characteristic features of most contemporary home designs doled out by A-cero Architects is the way in which they use dark stone to create structures that are both appealing and exude an understated class.
