Extending out into the first floor living/dining/kitchen area, and with a view of both that room and the second floor childrenfs rooms, the mezzanine serves to link the various spaces within the home.

From the central mezzanine to the linked childrenfs rooms and the living/dining/kitchen area with its vertical void, this home offers a diversity of living spaces that come together to provide a fun and stimulating environment for the residents.
