Upon arriving at the 2 bedroom house, you’re greeted by the garage which is lit up, enabling you to see the cars within.

A large steel door gives you access to an inner courtyard before reaching the main house.

Designed for an adult couple, the home has been kept to a single level for easy accessibility, and was designed to allow the mature trees on the lot to stay in place.


A stepped path made from wood and concrete, and surrounded by lush landscaping leads you from the garage to the main house.

Stepping into the house, you immediately see large sliding glass doors that open the interior to the garden outside, creating indoor/outdoor spaces that are found throughout the home, like in the dining room below.

Due to the design of the home wrapping around a courtyard, the architects created an overhang to allow for outdoor living spaces.

Looking down a hallway that runs alongside the courtyard you can see the dining room at the front of the house, and at the other end are the bedrooms.
