On the ground level of the home is the garage and laundry, while on the middle level are the bedrooms and bathrooms, and the top level of the home is dedicated to the social areas.

Connecting the various levels of the home is a central staircase that cuts up through the home, with a skylight above that allows daylight to penetrate the home and light it from within.
