Next to the sitting room is the dining area. A built-in sideboard lines the wall, while white oak has been used for the wood flooring.

A skylight that travels through all of the floors of the home, ends above the dining table, replacing the customary chandelier. At night, carefully concealed LED lights along the perimeter of the shaft provide a subtle radiance.

Next to the dining area is the kitchen. White minimalist cabinets fill the wall, and a long kitchen island with space for seating provides a backdrop for the living room that’s stepped down from the kitchen.

In the child’s bedroom, a small homework desk is sandwiched between the floor-to-ceiling closet and the wall. Two wood shelves keep favorite items within reach.
