Given California is one of the most desirable places to be on this planet and Carmel-by-the-Sea is the destination for Internationals, I have created an unusual residence to serve the wants and needs of that particular client. Tres Paraguas are three giant rectangular roofs of Corrugated Corten Steel roofs mounted on 30 x 30 square columns of Douglas Fir Columns 26 feet high, stilted - standing free - of the five buildings below -quite a site. The buildings are modern Pueblas, self-roofed, heavily stuccoed in three earth tones with 18 foot walls and giant 12 foot sliding glass walls that pocket into end walls, allowing the buildings to open into the courtyards and terraces as pavilions. Created and designed by Ron Mann, the entire layout is designed for relaxed time-off living, for total seclusion and restoration, and every kind of world-class entertaining. It is like a private luxury hotel.
