Located in California, USA, the 604 Acacia House is designed inside and out with the idea of a lavish way of living. From outside, you will notice this two-level building displays a variety of eye-catching symmetries, in both architectural elements and materials employed.

House Cal is a contemporary residence designed by Nico van der Meulen Architects with the request of having separate accommodation for the client’s 3 adult kids. To accommodate that and thanks to its location in a private estate, the house was designed to be open to the street with a glass link across a koi-pond as the entrance which separates the guest wing and son’s suite from the rest of the house. The two other kids were able to have their own north-facing suites and accompanying lounges. For each room, Nico van der Meulen Architects planned balconies on both the north and the south side.
