Around an interior courtyard of the house, the concrete path threads its way through a chain of outdoor and indoor spaces. These spaces take everyone to the outdoor dining room and a wood-clad den from the loft-like living/dining level on the upper level through a pool area with a dramatic canopy. Both the interior and exterior of this house are dominated by wood materials.
