Nestled in the woods, along the side of a slope, a 1972 house built by famed architect Eugene Futterman was an architectural gem awaiting its revitalization. Drawing on interiors that had left an imprint on him, including the exquisite lairs featured in the James Bond films of his youth, Godbold reimagined this once forgotten home.

Similarly, a new exterior staircase mimics the appearance of floating lily pads over the green ground covers. Ian Fleming would no doubt approve.
