Located in a secluded part of Watermill, this project is rich with historical references to Babylonia and the Tower of Babel. With the tiered steps of ziggurat architecture in mind, Godbold incorporated the concep into the custom furniture, walls and corners.

The neutral palette imbues a spa atmosphere, with accents of color introduced through art and sculpture. The stucco walls, exhibiting a textured finish, were inspired by the deserts of the Middle East.

The kitchen has a zen sensibility, with its simple and understated oak surfaces. Defying the typical materials approach to walls and countertops, Godbold selected camouflage marble and oiled white oak, respectively—yielding a fresh perspective in the home’s busiest room.
