A home for newlyweds, every aspect of this house has been carefully thought out to create a sense of connectedness.

This meant keeping spaces open, while also fostering seclusion and privacy – a brief which may seem contradictory in nature, but which has been made possible through a flow that ensures you can see into every room, wherever you stand in the house.

At the same time, there is a feeling of sanctuary – the sense that this is a retreat for people who enjoy each other’s company as much as they enjoy their home. This is particularly evident in the master bedroom, with features such as a courtyard shower. The contrast with the undeniable glamour of the dressing room creates an interesting tension.
