The couple wanted a resort type of home, wherein they could go about barefoot and just relax. The whole concept has an open plan and resembles the letter L. The two wings of the house are joined together by a great room.

A lot of reddish wood can be seen in the interiors. Railings are made of metal and glass, keeping up with the homes modern tempo. Furniture was kept sleek with the use of metal legs and white clean upholstery.
