The open sliding doors of the kitchen and children’s room can flexibly stretch the space, and when fully opened, improve circulation.

entrance makes you feel in a cave.
A vertical slit has been made in the main cube to create an inner patio. The slit brings in air and light, breaking up the mass of the cube and softening the sharp geometry of the design.
The tasting room celebrates rainwater as it flows off the roof, down a rain chain, and into the pond.

The house is organized around a diamond-shaped inner courtyard.
"One of the most interesting features is the glazed floor above the master corridor that allows a flood of light to penetrate into the kitchen zone," says Robertson.
A compact bedroom is enclosed in the black volume just off of the entrance. A small bathroom lies adjacent.
Here's a look at the entrance foyer that features a door leading out to the parking pad.
Despite the entrance hall being semi-enclosed, you can still get a glimpse of the light-filled interior thanks to the open atrium.
The iron staircase that weaves its way through the four floors has a decorative screen.

White walls and fit-outs give the home a light, summery atmosphere.
Internal brick walls and polished concrete surfaces provide thermal mass that help keep the interior spaces cool.
A central breezeway brings the family together to enjoy the tranquil outdoor scenery.
The connecting corridor, or circulation spine, uses built-ins to create space for various activities, such as a family study, a music spot, and reading nooks.
The architects located a new kitchen and dining space in the northern part of the addition. A curving corridor connects the original house to the new kitchen and dining space. Expansive openings in the hallway look into the new enclosed courtyard.
Interior spaces appear to flow seamlessly to the outside as materials continue from inside to out through invisible sheets of glass.
The street-level entrance to the complex.
The north-south hallways divide the programmatic areas to the east and west.
Benches with hidden storage were built into the walls to provide cozy reading or contemplation nooks where each resident can enjoy some private time.
The house employs "open architecture" and passive cooling techniques.
From the living area, floating stairs lead up to the second and third floor, which were designed as two compact levels stacked above the "wooden house" volume on the ground floor.

An entrance hallway is the first space you enter in a home, but it can also serve the very important function of acting as a drop-off station or mudroom for keys, shoes, and coats.
The low ceilings create a sense of darkening and narrowing, which contrasts with the voluminous, bright main room at the end of the corridor. The results bring to mind the play of light and shadow in the owner's love for chiaroscuro paintings.
Artistic touches have been added at every turn.
Low walls were built along the entrance area of the house, to create an internal “alley” that separates the two studio spaces.
The building houses a workshop with two studios on the ground level, and a residence on the upper level.
Some of the Japanese-style rooms were retained and restored.
Elements from traditional Japanese architecture such as warm wood, exposed beams, and shoji screen-style sliding doors characterize the home.
Mizumoto transformed one of the original Japanese-style rooms into a garden that references the house’s past as a rice field farmhouse.
Staying true to the aesthetics of traditional, Japanese rural homes, architect Sumiou Mizumoto stuck with simple color and material choices. White and wood elements dominate pure, streamlined spaces.
The kitchen and dining area have been designed as a single, open-plan space. This area now has a large antique table, Hans Wegner Y-chairs, and Danish-designed furniture.
Rough oak cabinetry frames the corridor that leads between the open living spaces, and the private beds and baths.
Inside the home green and blue are used for the bathroom block, dark brown for the sliding door, and orange for the wall dividing the living room from the kitchen. The floor is dark gray industrial poured concrete.
Architect Don Dimster designed this duplex as two family homes – one for him and his family and one for his brother’s family – with a pair of glass-walled, suspended steel stairways that connect both family homes to a shared 1,000-square-foot rooftop patio.
The eye is drawn down the corridor towards the slice of light.
The skylights are constantly changing the home's interiors. It's "not just day/night, or dark/light," says Bernheimer, "but the quality of light...changes at any given hour, depending on where clouds are, where the sun is, whether the moon is full or not, all dependent on the time of day, time of year, and so forth."
The main corridor bends 100 degrees from end to end and leads to three guest rooms, each with a different color door. “Roland took a Lawren Harris painting and matched the colors perfectly,” says David.
Once inside, natural light serves as an important material layered amongst its solid counterparts. Wood ceilings sit slightly pulled back from the walls to create a feeling of expansiveness.
An "in-between" space creates protected circulation between the separate volumes. A sheet of glass frames the view outside. "The ceilings in these spaces are all made of oak slats that, through the treatment with iron sulfate, turn naturally black because of the high content of tannin," said Stinessen. "The airy and black ceilings retreat from the visual connection to the outside."

More than a way to get from point A to point B, modern hallways are important transitional spaces that connect both rooms and people. A well-designed hallway maximizes our experience of moving between activities and stages of the day. The photos below showcase some outstanding examples with various flooring options from hardwood to concrete.
