Steppingstones cross a reflecting pool at the entrance to this contemporary home, which evokes a travertine-encased museum. Designed with expanses of walls for art display and an open floor plan for entertaining, the house centers on a 34-foot-high window-topped gallery that runs the length of the roof and brings in natural light.
