A present wall manufactured from walnut cabinetry separates the bedrooms and baths from most of the people areas.
The house steps up from the dwelling areas to A bedrooms, which we organized inline alongside a gallery hall. We raised the bottom on this portion of the house to encourage a method of intimacy and a way of separation from the additional public parts of the home. The primary bed room anchors one end of the gallery; from there one can entry the pool and yard.

Within the dwelling areas, the flooring are comprised of polished concrete with a hydronic system for flooring heating. The house home windows and doorways are a customized-made mannequin of atypical enterprise glazing strategies.
