The interior of the home features a large multipurpose creative space that can serve equally well as an office, gallery, or play room. A series of sliding walls provide clean and uncluttered storage space, while colorful magnetized cabinets offer a fun multifunctional surface for work and play. A bamboo garden in the back yard provides a place for rainwater runoff to infiltrate, and a spiraling staircase leads up to the living room.

The home’s bathroom is a marvel in and of itself – the cool blue space contains an airy chamber that is completely open to the sky. When the weather turns foul, a mechanical roof section slides into place to create an enclosed skylit space.
