The home’s vertical program balances public and private spaces while providing the interior spaces with plenty of natural light. Centrally-located skylights work with the home’s open, airy floor plan to allow daylight to penetrate down to the bottom floor. The kitchen and dining area is a sublime integrated space that is enhanced by contrasting finishes. The bath features a full-height mirror that enhances its visual size and functionality. The sink and counter seem to hover in the middle of the space as a result.
