To create privacy for the house, the architects used screens and courtyards, as well as landscape design.

Little gardens, decks, and water features surround the house, creating the sense of more space, and private areas.

In another bedroom, a decorative panel is used as a headboard, and the pattern on it, is the same one that’s featured on the screen that’s on the exterior of the house.
