Due to the uncommon Mansard-style roof of this house, use of natural light was central to the design of the project. To maximize the spread of daylight through the house, design included a skylight and specially designed glass walls for the internal bathroom, to ensure each room received natural morning light.
The use of the brassed black metal combined with the wood and detailed ceramic tiles recall the Mediterranean style that is mixed with industrial style the artist want recreate.
The big windows give you the necessary natural light for the Mansard style which initially left only a single wall to the exterior, and thus a single source of light.
