Around the corner is the highlight of the house: A double pool system that positions a second pool above the main one. The second level pool has a glass bottom, allowing water-focused light to enter the main area and providing a view of swimmers from below.
The house is open to the surroundings at either end. It has fully glazed facades which let in lots of natural light and expose the internal spaces to the views which, by the way, are pretty amazing. We’re particularly intrigued by the way these spaces are organized. As we already mentioned, they’re all clustered around a central space which has a double-height ceiling. A spiral staircase and a ceiling-mounted fireplace emphasize the height of the space and serve as focal points.
A misconception that critics often have of modern architecture is that it’s cool and cold. However, the opposite could be argued. A large number of modern designs feature elements that are naturally warm and inviting, such as wood and stone.
The overall design is defined by strong and obvious curves, featuring a V-shaped floor plan that frames a courtyard with its wings. The interior spaces seamlessly flow together, featuring curved walls, dividers and even gently arched ceilings. There’s nothing standard about this house yet you wouldn’t really be able to tell that by looking at it from the street, mainly because it’s difficult to even spot it from there.
