It is the basement that holds the utility rooms along with the wine cellar and a separate home gym while the first and second floors contain the living space bedrooms terraces and study areas. A modern pool and clever walkways complete the landscape with concrete being used along with wood on the inside.
The kitchen has always been the driving force that keeps the house running. But the last few years have seen a major revamp in kitchen design as it is no longer just a place to cook and serve meals.

A large garage is the main feature around which the rest of the house revolves even as a cool wine cellar and furniture workshop make up the ground level. Beyond functionality it is the dark charred cedar siding that stands out visually here as the exterior exudes a minimal organic vibe.
The slanted roof of the house is another striking feature that sets it apart from the many mundane homes that you come across. Despite its more modest outward appeal on the inside each room of the house is much larger than one anticipates and the exceptional roof design creates airy light-filled spaces across the three different levels.
