The Architectural shape of this home was dictated by the uniqueness of this sites conditions and taking into account the lifestyle of a modern and busy family. It balances freshness with warmth and contrasts natural with contemporary urban. Interior space is divided into two wings, separating private and communal spaces. These two volumes junction in the middle, connected by the circulation features: entrance and sculptural stairs. Cathedral ceilings throughout are reminiscent of the traditional style of design while the reverse roof symbolically opens towards the untouched nature and the horizon as a symbol of the new and the future. The architectural use of the reverse roof also offered other advantages, namely, concealing the mechanical systems, maximizing natural light and connecting visually with the ravine.
