The house, which is located in a ‘heavily wooded, private ravine’, has a design geared towards bringing the light in and with the minimum of fuss inside. Exposed brick walls, high (and angled) ceilings, floor to ceiling windows and huge spaces produce a design that’s very of its era, but at the same time, one that would work effortlessly in the modern era too.
