This home located in a tranquil downtown residential district sits on a flagpole-shaped lot, whose narrow frontage widens towards the back of the property. Although the approach gives a closed-off impression, the inner area with its central garden is open and spacious, forming a unique universe insulated from the outside world. With a dining room and custom-made kitchen adjacent, the courtyard provides a place where the clients, a couple, can enjoy swaying in their hammock or sipping a glass of wine as they barbeque. The meditation room and study, in contrast, offer private space for spending time alone. This hideaway in the midst of the city is like the ultimate vacation resort for its urban inhabitants.
