Rings around the family room.

Simple curves integrate this family room addition with the garden outside it. Architect John Nalevanko of Del Mar, California, oriented the new two-story room toward the outdoors; its most important feature is a curving floor-to-ceiling wall of glass. In a multifaceted sweep, the glass affords views of the garden just outside and of the Pacific Ocean in the distance.

An upstairs balcony leads to bedrooms and a bathroom.

Outside, San Diego landscape architect Ron Wigginton repeated the curve in a terrace and in two salt-finished concrete paths that spread across the lawn like ripples in a pond. The paved rings reinforce the visual theme and form great racetracks for three-wheelers.
