The Limantos Residence
A focal point, the spiral staircase, provides access to the mezzanine, where the media room, the fitness room and the balcony, with its fireplace, are. The lower floor is the family area, and contains a playroom and three suites. Entrance to the master suite is via a wide hallway, which opens up to the two bathrooms and the walk-in closet.
The living area is linked to the dining room by a glazed circulation area, which integrates a deck, infinite-border swimming-pool and lateral garden. The dining area opens up directly to the outside. So, almost entirely enclosed by glazed panels, the house seems to be immersed in the surrounding landscape.
But this does not mean the architect left out a sense of warmth that is proper to a family home. “I chose, for the interior, to create more introspective sceneries, based on indirect lighting, especially in the living-room, with its double-height ceiling and by using warmer finishes, such as wood. After all, a house has to look like a home”.
