I’ve died and gone to design heaven.
Architect Bart Prince dreamt up a fantastical house in Columbus, Ohio, distinguished by dynamic, flowing spaces. The owner describes the home as a place for big kids with, for instance, secret passageways hidden within the masonry walls. A 75-foot-long serpentine pool, lined with mirror-and-glass mosaics, winds its way along the lower level of the house. “The owner wanted a lap pool running through a tropical garden, with palm trees and bananas and views of the sky,” the architect says. “The living spaces are arranged around that.”
