The house is organized to optimize the site’s landscape and scenic views while providing maximum privacy. The open and airy floor plan connects inside to outside by creating lines of sight from the living space to both the eastern-facing garden and western negative-edge pool.

The more private bedroom suites are located upstairs, away from the public area, and each bedroom boasts its own bathroom and walk-in closet. Materials such as limestone, fiber-cement panels and stucco allow the house to blend with the surrounding landscape while maintaining a distinct modern living ambience on the interior.
