The exterior of the house has been designed to have low impact on its natural surroundings. The cladding and shutters are made from eucalyptus lattes, bound together with hand-twisted brass wire. Huge folding glass doors let light flood in.
In the bedroom the modern lines have been softened with traditional African and Indian bedspreads, bowls and baskets. The recess in the wall, complete with a down light, makes a feature of the couple's treasured finds.
