“The main volume of the house is an east-west oriented wedge which functions as the dining/living space. The kitchen and master bedroom pierce this wedge and extend out to form protected courtyards on the north and south. The studio/guest house stands free of the main structure and defines and shelters the entry”. The refined tastes of the owners can be seen all throughout the interiors below which inspire elegance and good taste. Concrete and wood were the main materials employed, resulting in an overall effect of natural warmth.
