The project brief calls for an outdoor area, walk-in robe, ensuite, three bedrooms, walk-in pantry & laundry, bathroom, rumpus room, kitchen, dining, and an open plan living. These rooms are designed on a limited size of 238 m². This aim is accomplished by building “the back yard” in a “U” shape, facing north, and also providing natural light.

The interior of this house is modern and elegant where white surfaces meet some different materials like concrete and wood. In order to create a balanced appearance, the selected furniture comes in wood. The open plan for the house rooms allows the clients to have good air circulation and a brighter atmosphere during the days.
