  • I don’t want to be pessimistic but if it starts raining patio and balcony will flood. I’m curious if the design will still have the clean looks when it’s actualy built. You can’t live in a nice rendering.

    Robin says:
  • Yes Parker I see it . Looks like a smiling woman’s face. . Surely smiling because this means luxury, money, power – three of the most desired things in the world and forever will be.
