The owner’s art gallery is located on ground level with part of the exhibit featured underground. The surrounding glass reflects on the window for a pleasing effect for passersby.
The living areas on the second level are accessed through a separate stairway in the back of the building. A minimalist design scheme in neutral tones is a natural extension for the art gallery below. Natural light flows through the space, thanks to a series of lateral windows and skylights. All bedrooms are located upstairs, in the cantilevered third volume. [Photography:
