Yesterday’s circular courtyard influenced this take, along with a small fountain I passed by in Beverly Hills the other day.

The focus is obviously interior, but that doesn’t mean that the exterior is devoid of a little fun and asymmetry. A wormseye axonometric above, sections and floor plan below, elevations and roof plan beneath.
