The designer says the simplicity of the space is meant to create a calming environment inside, and the full floor-to-ceiling glazing lets the beauty of the natural surroundings take centre stage. The Zen-inspired design aims to balance maximizing quality views while maintaining privacy by creating a suspended wall on the north side, facing neighbours. The wall engulfs a floating entry that includes a waterfall and greenery.
