The first thing you'll notice when you enter the house is how light it is. The skylight in the entry corridor is 9 meters long. For most of the skylights I used 'reflecta-sol' glass which filters the sunlight and reduces the amount off heat significantly. The next thing you'll notice is the use of a natural off white plaster throughout the house. All of the thresholds are made from a hard tropical woods that I also used as a detail in the glass doors. One of the things that impressed me when I started working on this house was the excellent air flow througout the house. When I raised the ceilings I added vents, skylights and windows to take advantage of northeast breezes.
