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.
Just as the pools run perpendicular to one another at the back of the house, the crisscrossing elements of the walkway and concrete support structures have a similar geometry. The hillside yard features small paving stones that provide a design element as well as a structure that controls rainwater flow and erosion.
This is not to say that a modern home cannot have pops of color or added character through decor. It is just that it needs to be done in a manner that adds to the architecture rather than takes away from it.
Less is definitely more when it comes to decorating a modern home. After all, why would you want to hide all the amazing architectural details of the design by adorning it with a lot of extra ornamentation? These designs were meant to speak for themselves, making their own statement through their structure and functionality.
