The open living area also contains the kitchen and the dining room. Three of the four old bedrooms were transformed into serene contemporary bedrooms and a guest room while the additional room was turned into a home office.
It is the second level (cleverly hidden into the slope of the lot) that holds the master bedroom kids’ bedrooms and guest bedrooms even as one finds a seamless connection between both floors of the Pagoda House. A smart home that is both practical in design and fascinating in its form!
