The interior is awash in refined details — bubble-like lighting was design and made specifically for the home by the architect and can be converted from halogen to LED lights. The textured ceiling above the massive timer beams host multiple skylights introducing daylight throughout the space.

Aesthetically the home seems to change its profile constantly, from flat to angular and back again. The largeness of the timber beam roof and massive angled concrete walls gives way to large open expanses framed in glass. The result is an ever-changing form in tension.
