From the backyard and detached studio you can see the rooftop and the ‘U’ shape of the main house. The main entrance to the house is from the alleyway, which is roughly level with the rooftop.

Stepping down from the yard, is a entry courtyard that dips 6 feet below the backyard. A terraced garden sits alongside the stairs, and a firepit welcomes you to the home.

Stepping inside the glass door to the side of the courtyard, you are hit with a burst of color with bright pink and purple cabinetry. Through a pocket door is the laundry, and hidden lighting in the ceiling creates ambient lighting.

Next to the entryway, is the kitchen. Navy blue cabinets that run the length of the wall have been topped with white counters in the kitchen, while wood counters help to define the dining area.
