The design strategy was to design a 3 contemporary, luxury family home. A curved ramped drive leads to a 4-car basement garage, plus cellar and storage. The ground floor level contains the family/entertaining zones. A dialectic tension is created between ‘open’ active spaces to the north, and ‘confined’ passive spaces to the south. These spaces are legible both internally and externally. To the north, the elemental composition is light and ephemeral.
