Much of the landscape around the home has been left to its natural state, however, some areas have been updated to include water features, retaining walls, pathways, and small sitting areas.

The ‘Slot House’, gets its name from a window that slices through a double-height interior space. The window provides a vertical and horizontal connection and creates a unique distinction between public and private spaces. It also allows natural light and blue skies into the home’s core.
