The recently completed OZ residence by Swatt Miers Architects, located in Silicon Valley, California, is a tranquil and luxurious home set on 2.8 acres and complete with incomparable gardens designed by landscape architect Ron Herman. The house is designed in an L-shaped plan and is complete with a two-story great room and two wings that are joined together by a floating glass bridge.

The OZ residence is home to a young couple with two children, and is designed based on their vision of a "barefoot feel, like a vacation destination." The L-shaped building is laid around an enormous pool with a mahogany deck, all of which is surrounded by gently rolling hills and luscious green trees. This idyllic Californian home is enough to inspire a warm vacation, at the very least.
