Built for a couple and their son, the D House’s top floor is rotated 45 degrees from the ground floor to create double-height spaces and to allow sunlight and cooling breezes to seamlessly enter the house. Interior walls are painted white to create a sense of spaciousness and to absorb the changing colors of the outside environment. Warm-toned, polished wooden planks cover the floor as well as the diagonal stairway.

Due to the angled geometry of the house, breathtaking views of the ocean and forest can be enjoyed from every room. The first floor includes the living room, dining room and kitchen as well as a small bedroom. Sliding glass doors open out to two sheltered outdoor terraces that offer varied views of the landscape. The master bedroom and bathroom are located upstairs.
