With this home, as if instinctively, we decided to let the pool be the defining element. It sits asymmetrically on the southern end arranging spaces around it that lends the house an introverted character. Almost all the spaces open onto the pool - visually if not physically. The pool also connects the house to a generous garden thus becoming a grander place for entertainment and play.
On the other hand, the split courtyards allow for cross-ventilation and flow of natural light to the basement. An effort has gone into blurring the line between built and natural environment while maintaining privacy for the family. A dense layer of foliage acts as a buffer from the neighbouring masses. Natural materials such as wood and stone are used to bring in a layer of warmth and depth to the spaces.
