The home is focused around a dramatic central three-story wood-clad lightwell, functioning as both a light monitor, a ventilation chimney that cools the home, and vertical circulation.

The bedrooms are compact with space-saving built-in furniture and wardrobes, laundry is built in off the circulation hall, and every square inch of space is thoughtfully designed and utilized.

Tucked into the roof peak, above the children’s bedrooms, are hidden reading lofts accessed by custom access ladders, while overlooking the primary bedroom is a small office and music studio.
