The rear house orients to an exterior garden on the rear of the house. The kitchen / dining room is on this level so that when the large sliders are open it creates an indoor/outdoor flow. A pair of two-story raw steel panels, custom-designed for the project, fold out from the wall to create a hood and sconce covers. The second floor living room, with its glass railing and glass walkway, overlooks the kitchen. Three bedrooms are on the third floor, each with its own full bath.
