Swatt’s designs are recognized for their focus on spatial continuity, strong connection to the land, and blurred boundaries indoor-outdoor boundaries. Those distinctive qualities are never more apparent than in these glass-framed spaces, which begin with a breathtaking entry with 24-foot ceilings and a dramatic Brazilian Machiche door.
