The living room is a captivating space featuring a double height vaulted ceiling. An impressive large viewing window floods the room with natural light. The room is vast yet with an open fire and warm wood accents it manages to retain a level of intimacy that makes it feel cosy and inviting – not cold and stark.

The architect provides plenty of unique design features, such as the interestingly shaped windows. Interesting yes, but a nightmare to buy curtains for most likely.
