Building their home from scratch with the intention of creating spaces that offered easy inside-outside living, this family now has a forever home complete with a highly adaptable and flexible entertainment area that is perfect for use year-round.

The main focus when building this home was to create an environment that was child-friendly, safe, private but open, yet easily adaptable to when the three kids grow up.

In terms of the look and feel, the owners wanted a sophisticated yet minimalist and modern elegance with a clean-cut structure that offered easy maintenance.
