To one side of the front door is a pond water feature that has a simple child-like sculpture of a folded sailboat.

Stepping inside the front door, there’s another water feature with a life size sculpture of a pensive monk, made from Beslana stone, that’s gingerly poised on the water’s surface as if levitating.

Due to the cross shape of the house, there’s multiple courtyards that facilitate the  movement of air throughout the home. The landscaped garden has solid stone stairs that lead to an elevated garden roof.

Throughout the house rich dark wood has been paired with rendered lime plaster walls with a stucco-like appearance. Pops of color, like the blue accent wall next to some stairs, add a touch of brightness to the interior.

Tucked away under another set of stairs is a small bar area with open shelves and cabinets for storage.

Here’s a closer look at the stone that covers the house. Coming from quarries nearby, the stone has a mottled texture and bone coloration, that ages well. The cellular structure of this sandstone holds intermittent microscopic air gaps, acting as an insulation panel itself.
