Sight lines were introduced to capture the views of the pool and garden from the key areas of the home, like in the hallway that’s brightened with the use of two pendant lamps.

At the end of the hallway, there’s an open plan living room, dining room, and kitchen, with soaring ceiling heights that introduce a sense of space, light and scale to the residence.

Large floor-to-ceiling windows provide a views of the yard and swimming pool.
