Designed by MODO Designs the structure of this pavilion-style retreat is divided into two sections with the front façade holding the public spaces and the more sheltered rear edifice containing the bedrooms and the bathrooms.
The entrance from the street leads to the first floor that contains the public spaces with the kitchen and dining at the heart of it all. This also ensures that it is the living area and sitting room on the peripheral that get the best views on offer while the ground floor holds the bedrooms and other private zones.
Since the home did not have to accommodate spaces for kids there was a certain amount of design freedom that the architects gladly tapped into. The open and long living area is flanked by dining space and kitchen on one end and the bedroom on the other.
Adding to the intrigue and the visual splendor of this modern home is the Brise soleil that keeps away hot tropical sun and creates beautiful walkways that are still lit ever so beautifully by natural light.
