In regards to the design of the home, the architects mention, “The floating volume has a pitched roof, but the coping of the roof is turned diagonal in the floor plan which gives an optimization in usable space on the inside and an outspoken architectural design on the outside.”

The front door to the home is integrated into the black wood exterior, creating a seamless and streamlined appearance.
