Marrying natural materials such as traditional stone-clad elevations with an interior complemented by beautiful walnut and oak floors demonstrates architectural ideas partly inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright which lend character to such a modern house; thoughtful treatment of solar gain and deep windows featuring combinations of sliding screen or tilt-and-turn terrace access give a tremendous sense of light and space witnessed by the principal rooms dual aspect for instance the main bedroom suite s wrap-around corner windows catch the first glimpse of the morning sun in fact, each of the rooms along the easterly front elevation enjoy views out to sea the main living room faces east and south; the dual-height sun lounge has a triple aspect; and the fine open-plan dining room/kitchen opens onto a south-westerly terrace which in summer is like a room-outside.
