Let’s take a look at the rest of the home…

The Entry Pathway

Tropical plants line a pathway that leads to the entryway of the home, where you’ll find a pivoting front door with views of a garden through glass walls. The entryway also provides a separation between the social areas of the home, and the bedrooms/bathrooms.

The Kitchen

The interior of the home is lined in Tauari, a Brazilian pale wood, while the kitchen is completely made out of darkened wood. The kitchen can also be hidden from view, as a section of the cabinetry can be lowered down to close it off.
