"IL PARADISO" is a beautifully designed and modernized Moroccan palace. The architectural design stemmed from a simple but thoughtful sketch drawn on an Intercontinental Bangkok Hotel notepad at 33,000 feet in the air. The design is depicted by local artist, Allison Wickey's original painting which is hung on the wall at the entrance of the home.
The entry door is custom made from rare wenge wood from Central Africa. It is supported by specially designed patented Soss hinges and adorned with custom made cylindrical aluminum tubes with blue tinted glass inserted in between. The tubes are arranged as peepholes to provide the feel of the beach.
Upon entry, the adjacent Moroccan room is a dome, crowned with a hand made, one of a kind chandelier built by a Moroccan artist and modified slightly from the one located at Casba Tamadot resort in Atlas mountain, Morocco, owned by the famous Richard Branson.
Influenced by a life of world travel, every detail was carefully hand selected and custom made to fit the inspired dream of this palace.
Treasures imported from across the globe make this architectural masterpiece a collection even the well-traveled artisans dream of. The Moroccan gathering room is for entertaining and relaxation. It looks into the gallery highlighted by high-quality Sepele wood stained separating the imported shell from the Philippines.
The gallery hallway is illuminated by custom hand-made elliptical Italian lighting.
The exterior doors are custom made solid Mahogany doors and windows. They were manufactured in Italy from German-made mechanisms. Even the solid brass Moroccan style door handles are custom made by rocky Mountain Hardware.
The chef's kitchen is from Bulthaup, one of the best German kitchen manufacturers. It includes a 12' x 4' long all German stainless steel countertop and Gaggenau gas and ceramic cooktop, all aluminum cabinetry, and fine wood interiors for cutlery and utensils.
