The owner received approval from the City Building Review Board to demolish a farmhouse and work with architect Diana Melichar to design a Mediterranean-inspired residence.  The collaboration of owner and architect created a house that fits gracefully within existing mature landscaping on its large lot, is scaled and designed to blend comfortably with neighboring established estate buildings, and accommodates the owner's needs within a design mass that maintains the dominance of landscaping on the property.
