The house is oriented so that all of the rooms can enjoy the outdoor living area which includes Pool, outdoor dinning, bbq and play court.

It’s orientation is thought out to maximize passive solar design and natural ventilations, with solar chimney escaping hot air during summer and heating cold air during winter eliminated the need for mechanical air handling.

Magnetic chalkboard sliders in the play area and paperboard sliders in the kids’ rooms transform the house itself into a medium for children’s artistic expression.

Material contrasts (stone, steal, wood etc.) makes this modern home warm and family friendly.
