The rooftop terrace looks almost like an unfinished roof and its cool pergola-inspired design offers smart shade during the day and also lets in natural heat and light for the beautiful vegetable and fruit garden.

The interior of the house showcases a wonderful balance between glass concrete and wood to ensure that there is ample textural contrast. While the expansive use of wood in light tones gives the home an inviting and cozy vibe extensive floor-to-ceiling glass doors and windows ensure that the living area extends into the long balcony outside.
On the inside the luxurious residence brings together wood stone concrete and glass to shape a spectacular retreat where form meets function. The decor is kept to a bare minimum with iconic pieces such as the Eames Elliptical Table and the Womb Chair taking center stage.
