The original house was lacking a backyard because of the steep slope. The renovation removed soil at the back to create a usable terraced yard that interconnects the two-level residence. The progression through the terraces begins with a seating area adjacent to the master bedroom with steps that lead down to a patio with planting beds. Descending from the patio reveals an outdoor fireplace adjacent to a ground level multipurpose room which open up to the outdoor with glass doors that bring light and breeze from the yard.
