For the beds, sliding doors, walls, wardrobes, bespoke cabinets, and fireplace, the architect uses pinewood panels. The material can get a high-end feeling as well thanks to the fine details. The different areas of this villa also can be connected by the pinewood, including connecting the house to its surrounding nature.
