The layout of the house wraps around a landscaped garden and lawn area at the front of the home. The lawn is surrounded by a border of smooth pebbles, and large glass walls provide a glimpse inside.

Here’s a look at the powder bathroom. Lighting has been used to highlight the artwork on the wall, and on either side of the mirror, soft lighting creates an ambient glow.
