A young couple with children approached us to build a home in which their family would grow, a house that was suited to their contemporary tastes and to their desire to flow easily between indoors and outdoors.

With this vision, we designed a home in the image of a coconut shell: rustic and protective on the outside but cut open at the back to allow free movement between the kitchen and the garden.
