Stylish use of skylights make sure there is appropriate natural light even in the private areas while an expansive deck to the north allows the residents to be at one with the bamboo and Japanese maple backdrop. A beautiful wooden staircase connects the lower level with the top floors and a concrete path above the water surface in the backyard makes for a cool walkway.
