One can only see a hint of this modernity from the street but as you step inside the ambiance of the house moves completely away from its more traditional brick-clad exterior. White is the color of choice inside with a dash of gray adding refinement to the setting even as a flood of light from the new living area flows all the way to the front section.
Designed by Kobi Karp the abode would fit into the image of an ‘ideal dream home’ of almost anyone as its majestic interior leads towards a magical backyard that embraces the charm of life next to the ocean in a truly spectacular fashion.

The structure of seems to be inspired by the petals of a flower as its four distinct wings spread out in different directions making the most of the available space. This also creates a spacious central zone with a sculptural staircase connecting the front and the back wings of the home nestled on split levels.
The lower level of the home contains the kitchen dining and living spaces (as is the norm in most homes) with folding and sliding glass doors connecting these areas with the garden.
