At a seaside escape in Mexico, an architect known for restraint and an interior designer with a flair for exuberance prove that opposites do attract.
Five years ago, a West Coast couple with four children purchased two oceanside lots with plans to build their dream vacation house in a new development in the southern part of the Baja peninsula. To ensure an original design, they chose an award-winning architect and a celebrated interior designer who could not be more opposite in style. Greg Warner of the San Francisco firm Walker Warner Architects specializes in impeccable, clean-lined buildings, such as the airy pavilions of Flowers Vineyards & Winery in Sonoma County. He calls the style “modernist but soft.” Designer Ken Fulk, meanwhile, can be counted on for fireworks.
