The house is divided into two floors, the main floor is dedicated to the social areas of the house, while upstairs are the more private areas, like bedrooms and bathrooms.

Steps, made from concrete poured in place, lead down to the living room that features a fireplace, whose hearth is integrated into the steps.

All the trees on the site were kept and become part of the layout in the design. In the backyard, the tall trees are highlighted are night.

Back inside, and there’s a dining room with a wall of windows providing views of the backyard. The dining table is anchored in the room by the use of a large rug.

Some spaces in the house, like the one below, are dedicated to a tree that the architects kept and worked around, making it a unique feature of the home. The house is also open in strategic spots to generate light wells to illuminate the house in strategic places.


The architects designed this modern house around a tree that was original to the site. #Architecture #LightWell #Trees
