Everything was designed to blend in with the surrounding portions of the site, especially the second floor. Here the principal living spaces house two generous living rooms, an open plan kitchen and a dining room. Due to the huge floor to ceiling windows all rooms open out to terraces or garden spaces and, also, benefit from tones of natural light.
