Young and Borlik Architects are responsible for the design of this modern, clean-lined home that is located in Atherton, a town in Northern California. This dwelling was built to integrate the Eastern roots with Western living, embodying the aesthetic of both cultures with a master plan originally directed by a Feng Shui master.

Inside you will find comfortable and timeless living spaces that connect the interior and exterior spaces for optimal family life and entertainment. The use of oak throughout sets a warm tone for this home while capturing the owner’s unique collection of antiques and art. A customized tea room honors a past culture in a present modern setting, honoring a forgotten ritual with beauty and grace.
