The outdoor living space for the 2020 ICONIC HAUS is a stylish reflection of the architectural spirit of this home…a modern and minimalist space with accents of color and shape. The home is designed by local award-winning architect, C.P. Drewitt, who was inspired by the Mexican architect, Luis Barragon, who used simple lines and planes with right angles, and added drama with light, shadow and bold saturated colors. Modern style is an exercise in restraint. It means less visual clutter and more emphasis
on key elements—shape, shadow, color and scale. The sculptural round swing is a fun spot for relaxation and is a contrasting shape to the straight, clean lines of the fireplace. The large-scale abstract art piece was commissioned by artist Niki Woehler, and its colors are moody and beautifully layered. Artful and dramatic pieces like this give personality to a space and this canvas is meant to BE the wall rather than just a piece hung ON a wall. We chose to use the STILL collection from Brown Jordan, the premier sponsor of this Iconic Estate. It has a retro modern vibe and the elegant flair that we needed for our outdoor living room…a place for evening cocktails and loungey parties. Relax and enjoy!
