The relationship between interior and exterior is both calming and rejuvenating. Mindful consideration of the home’s placement on the lot resulted in the harmonious blending with the surrounding land. Restful landscaping features drought-tolerant plants, native grasses and trees interspersed with purposeful positioning of smooth and organic surfaces of rock and brick; every element clearly placed with intention, promoting beauty and serenity.

about

doug Mack

g

he evolution of a boy from West Los Angeles who entertained himself building forts and tunnels from scrap wood to the innovative Master Builder he is today seems logical, considering his uncle is a famous architect and his father and grandfather are accomplished designer/builders. But it becomes apparent that Doug’s myriad travels and life experiences empowered him to not only embrace his natural talents, but to do so with an infectious passion and a unique perspective. After completing his degree in business at the University of California Santa Cruz, Doug embarked on the first of what would become many, enlightening trips. Visiting Japan, he was awed by the beauty of their culture and the depth of integrity that is embraced in their history of art and architecture. “Pictures of these places cannot compare to the magnificence of actually experiencing them first-hand. It was a moving experience that contributed to and expanded my belief in unlimited possibilities,” remarks Doug. In between projects for his clients, Doug procured properties in and around Carmel, developing, designing and remodeling them - creations that enabled him to complete a thought and see it evolve into something measurable, tangible…something that can be called a home. While this proved exceptionally fulfilling, the desire to see and learn more resurfaced.

W

oug is a man who relishes life and strives to maintain a sense of balance and harmony. And that means squeezing in some surfing every now and then. Indonesia called to Doug and he responded, embarking on a journey that would take him through South East Asia-Singapore, Malaysia, Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand-then back to Japan, revealing rich and diverse cultures.

His thirst not yet satisfied, Doug returned to Europe, exploring the ancient architecture of the Romans and the renaissance period and more. Upon arriving back on the central coast of California, he was inspired and anxious to tap the creative juices his travels aroused. Doug repeatedly uses words like scale, proportion, essence, texture, transparency, inspiration, possibilities, creative outlet, learning, passion, experience, fun and love. Doug Mack is a man who speaks these words and then transforms them into the reality of the vision. According to a long-time friend, “There are no shortcuts in Doug’s work, only a relentless drive in pursuit of the vision; the harmonious interplay between form and function.”

W

oug relates with his own gentle enthusiasm how he looks forward to the next project and the opportunity to create a home to fulfill a client’s desire and vision; to be a part of the entire process again. With more than twenty-five major projects under his belt, Doug can barely contain his excitement about the next one. For him, the possibilities are endless .

Carmel valley

Ä|yxáàçÄx

V

armel Valley is an unincorporated area stretching east from Carmel,

with the Carmel Valley Village about a twelve mile drive. The pastoral beauty of the Valley, once almost exclusively farming and ranching, is a stunning alternative to the coastal scenery. While agriculture and some ranches still dot the landscape, the Valley has become a sought-after place to live. While hiking, horseback riding, tennis and golf can be enjoyed by locals and visitor alike, wine tasting rooms and restaurants in the Village are a delight! Generally, you have more "room to roam" in the Carmel Valley, with many homes situated on one-acre parcels. As with other areas of the Monterey Peninsula, there is also a variety of styles and price-ranges. For a visitor, there are accommodations available, but they are somewhat limited as is all development in the Carmel Valley.
