This striking house is a prominent marker in the neighborhood - with its notable use of modest materials executed in a playfully restrained fashion. 

It is an homage to the car collection of the family, with a timeless collectible aptly being featured by the glass-covered garage upfront. The rest of the architecture celebrates multi-generational living with the use of cleverly divided spaces and unconventional layouts while the use of wood in varying textures makes the whole interior cohesive.
