The kitchen, a gathering point for the family, includes a timber tabletop which blends the island bench and dining table. This design seeks to provide one furniture piece for all members of the family to use for their individual tasks at once.

The home has an intimate indoor-outdoor connection through the design of an interior courtyard that acts as the heart of the residence. The internal garden, treated like an extra room, is connected to the interior through sliding doors.

The inclusion of greenery as a central part of the home stems from studiofour’s focus on ‘nature deficit disorder,’ aiming to rebuild a relationship with the outdoors.
