The house kitchen is connected to the garden through the careful detailing of layout and materials. Even each room in this house is small, the arrangement of the furniture and interior elements on the house layout is important especially to make each room looks larger than it seems. There is also a wooden wine rack where the residents can tidy up their favorite wines.

In order to create a more decorative look inside the house, the bathroom is more colorful than the living zones. The bathroom is designed with small blue tiles to decorate its wall while the floor is beautified with beautiful patterned tiles. This house is also dominated by wood materials that can be found also inside the bathroom and the house garage.
