Inside, the interior is bright with white walls and light wood flooring, a strong contrast to the black exterior. The living room with built-in bench seating has been slightly sunken down, while the dining room and kitchen have been slightly raised.

Wood stairs lead up to the upper floor of the home, where bedrooms are located. Beneath the stairs is a void in the floor for plants that add greenery to the otherwise light interior.

Off to the side of the stairs is a small patio area with seating, that’s shaded by the shape of the home.
