Rouse Residence

Malibu, California

~ This unique 5-acre estate is entered through a bridge over a created perennial creek that runs throughout the property. Major water elements become the “connection” for estate amenities, including the entryway, lake guest house, main house, swimming pool, guest house/gym and the meditative yoga pavilion at the top of the property. The surrounding mountain range with large rock outcroppings became the “borrowed landscape theme,” as well as the source spring for the cascading creek waterfalls, ponds, and lake feature.
