From the architect. The program called for a main residence and a working space. The house and office are two separate independent entities however have a seamless relationship. There are two entrances to the building, including a three car garage and carriage porch to receive visitors. According to the architects the design of these elements stemmed from what the site demanded.

Situated on a challenging flag-shaped site, this building is barely visible from the main road. The main structural material for this two-story home and office space is reinforced concrete.

The building itself is intercepted with a circumference and the southern face's depth and space communicate a feeling of freedom by taking and making use of the surrounding landscape in the design of a garden in the inside space.
