SK: It’s a four bedroom house with two extra chambers that can double up as staff or guest rooms. The living and dining enclaves have been built around the courtyard with multiple breakout spaces emerging and culminating within it. So the ground floor has all the public areas; the boudoirs are on the first, while a sunken level has the kitchen with access to the two additional spaces. All doors lead out to the large porch bringing the outdoors in. A spiral staircase was also created, which meanders into a secondary, partially open living room with a double height ceiling.
