“There are perfectly executed, subtle details that spark questions and add mystery,” said Bowen. Some elements even defied convention and required newly concocted solutions to make the concepts work. A seven-foot high, 17-foot wide second story window, that overlooks the main floor from the fitness center, first had to be made and then hoisted into place. Not easy to do since this was a single, seamless piece of glass. Countless LED lights, distinguishable only when they are illuminated, are tastefully integrated to create soft accents throughout the interior, including around the base of the free-standing circular shower and the combination kitchen island and dining counter. A 180-foot vertical chandelier made from fabric and delicately molded plastic, descends from the second to the first floor. Another dramatically designed lighting fixture features two miles of silver cable, that have been artfully draped to make the metal cascade like falling water. The dining room, that easily accommodates a circular table seating 10, overlooks floor-to-ceiling curved windows facing the treeshaded residential street. When the lights are on at night, the space glows like a giant crystal ball. From the wall mounted Moroccanstyle bowls to the handwoven rugs, to the bathroom sinks that cast a red hue on hot water and create cold water that appears blue, there are untold ways the house has been accented with what Bowen refers to as “sprinkles of jewelry everywhere.” “It’s all very soft, organic and clean, not stark. It’s really relevant for all time.” M
