A growing family builds their dream home by balancing style with kid-friendly design by Kim Collins-Lauber photography by Ashley Champagne Sitting atop a bluff in the river valley and overlooking an expanse of woodland and water is Wolf Willow Ridge, a high-end residential division in the city’s west end. The prestigious subdivision is home to many beautiful luxury homes. Few, however, stand out in this cityscape of traditional, stone- façade dwellings with their multi-gable, hip and pyramid roofs. One home in particular that demands a second look is that of Monica and Rakesh Patel. With strong, linear lines, a simple, yet sophisticated structural aesthetic and a balance of modern and organic elements, the “Alpha Wolf,” as it was dubbed by the designers at Habitat Studio, lives up to its name in both eminence and edge. >> MAY.14 97
