Stone and marble with fine texture and pattern were chosen to make a plain wall look more interesting and beautiful. Wood was chosen to use for a warm and cozy feeling.

Between the public guest area and the master living area, there is a courtyard garden with a vertical garden as the vocal point, as the barrier to keep privacy for the private area. Interior and exterior spaces are connected by openings that have a direct view of the garden and the swimming pool.

The use of glass material as a partition of the outer and inner space within the living and dining room makes this area seem to blend with the outside area.
