Large floor-to-ceiling glass windows offer a seamless connectivity between the interiors and the green backyard. The kitchen and dining space have been crafted to keep them visually connected with the living area and a large Corian bench top along with bold pendant lights steal the show here. The nature of the home and its unique geometry meant that multiple layers of lighting had to be combined to bring the best of the interiors both in terms of form and functionality.
An abundance of colors can also balance the cold feeling of materials used to create the living spaces. For example colorful glass vases accentuated by expressive paintings cut through the cold atmosphere buried in the steel and glass staircase thus lifting the floating staircase to new levels of expression.

One of the major elements of design that altered the look of the existing structure was the extensive use of glass.
