Two Elevations and Two Facades Create Airy Openness and Clever Comfort
Situated on a prominent corner lot, this home’s second story is site to help de-scale the corner and create spectacular vistas of the unique folded roof and the courtyard below.
The interior courtyard features plenty of areas for lounging, a pool, and easy access to communal areas as well as the downstairs bedroom.
Multiple varieties and stains of wood are situated throughout the home, while can and recessed lighting provide light in addition to numerous windows.
Public spaces like the kitchen and living areas are located in direct relationship to the courtyard formed around the U-shaped layout, giving the feel of bringing the outside in.
Natural light filters through the home and even into the upstairs areas, like this media room adjacent to a guest bedroom, to give the home an airy, open feel.
In addition to a glass-paneled shower and dual sink vanity, the bathroom also hosts a soaking tub and ceiling-level clerestory style windows to allow natural light without sacrificing privacy.
