The house consists of three separate buildings resembling large barns connected by a central courtyard. The courtyard is actually a large patio area used as an outdoor living and entertaining space, especially delightful thanks to the weather we enjoy in this country. This is why the kitchen is close to the outdoor courtyard area and not adjacent to the home’s entrance as is common in most homes, as the kitchen today is an integral part of the hosting or entertaining space, and one of the most fun areas to spend time in. The kitchen is designed with stone, with a large center island. This model combines three different types of raw materials: Statuario marble, stainless steel, and triple-layered timber which has undergone a centuries long weathering process of fuming, cleaning and brushing.
