I do like the airiness and vertical lines that contrast with the flat planes of the views.

Great design and using volume to create both vastness and intimacy is brilliant! you seem to have it all. Would love to see more on this project; before and after photos and even house plans both before and after. Fascinated with how it might work through different weather, e.g. storms etc, how much protection does the under terrace get, presuming that is why it has primarily been designed the way it has. I'd like more photos on the side pergola or screening of the front door area, can't quite get how that works, are there window panes used as a screen? Love those internal casement shutters they must provide wonderful air ventilation through the whole building, I don't live in the tropics but feel that would be essential. Enjoy your retirement and your beautiful home. Well done to the Architects and builders.
