a perfect square with four similar facades. On the north side is the front door, while on the south, sitting in the garden, is the pool. There are four shaded exterior terraces cut out at each of the four corners, with three other terraces on all three walls of the Great Room.
The home then has a centralized plan with the Great Room being the space from where all other spaces derive; the entrance on the north façade enters directly into this space, with huge windows East, South and West. On that northern side are the utilitarian spaces: a bathroom, pantry, laundry and closets. The bedroom clusters are located at the four corners of the home, each with its own dressing area, bathroom and small terrace.
It’s an interesting design that allows every room to open up to the garden, and terraces, and onto one another from the inside. I like the ease on movement through the house, and all that openness.
It seems so simple. No fuss.
