The home was constructed as a clean-lined horizontal, solid and weightless volume, while welcoming a succession of open spaces with whole glass facades that opens the home entirely to the exterior. The ground floor is the core of the home. It offers complete openness without visual barriers, encompassing a lounge space, dining room and kitchen that creates a unique atmosphere. The upstairs features all the private areas, a long corridor defines the space and is open to the first level to enhance the open, airy feel of the home. The residence boasts the latest in home automation, with signature devices that controls numerous functions such as various light scenes, temperature sensors, background music in all the rooms, and automatic removal of the large glass panels that surrounds the perimeter of the home. The exterior facade offers a dynamic contrast of white Viroc panels mixed with the dark volcanic stone. Via
