“At the 2nd storey, a series of retractable external roller blinds provide shade and privacy to the bedrooms and Family room from the high-rise condominiums directly opposite. At the same time, it makes a lovely private, external and well lit space that focuses the view towards the park along Crescent Road.
The 1st storey has an open concept with the Living, Dining and dry kitchen along a very simple rectilinear plan. All the glass sliding doors enclosing this space slide out of view. The Master bedroom is at the attic, and has a generous outdoor deck facing the park.”
