The heart of the house is the grand foyer. This ground floor double-height space provides a visual connection with the different sections of this floor (two guest bedrooms and two studies on one side; the living-dining-lounge room and kitchen in the other side) and with the first floor of the house. This, along with the skylights and huge floor to ceiling windows, allows huge amounts of light to enter the home and allows uninterrupted views of the landscaped gardens.
The main inspiration for the project was to bring landscape into inner spaces. The windows allow the existing trees and garden to act as the external walls of the dwelling. Vertical gardens have been placed inside the house in order to increase the feeling of being in touch with landscape and natural light. At the same time, the design let cross ventilation in the main levels. The main functions have been placed facing South.
The first floor follow the same pattern of the ground floor but just with four bedrooms as the main function of this level.
