This house has interesting architectural elements, namely a series of vertical, horizontal and diagonalplanes in different colours, materials and textures. The white walls of the main space are bookended by wide, black-plastered columns custom-made by Polidori, which nearly reach the ceiling. Behind one of these, a white staircase balustrade cuts through on a diagonal. Closer to the centre of the space, the building's original four pillars have been edged with taupe-tinted oak strips, creating myriad framing effects for the spaces behind them. Vertical strips of oak extend from the top of tall doors to the ceiling, subtly calling to mind Japanese wood panelling. A sense of spatial division is created with large-scale bespoke lights, one design used in the entrance hall, another in the seating area and one above the dining table.
