Inside, there’s an open floor plan with the main living room and entertainment areas located between to wings.

The ceiling was created by using raw wood planks that reference the pine trees outside, while the folded shape represents the cascading terraces of the landscape.

By having an expansive concrete ceiling, it allowed the design of the home to have a 39 foot (12m) span without any columns.
