The verandah’s space is the particular attention of this project that has been enclosed by a frameless vertical window. This can recreate the original ambiance of the verandah and allowing it to be enclosed for protection, security, and air conditioning as well.

There is a 2 outhousese that complement the main house, holding the wet kitchen and other rooms as well. The detail of fittings and the selection of finishes are also important elements for this house, especially to ensure a modern yet classic feeling inside and outside the house.
