Classic design is often subversive. For example, unconventional upper and lower villas have a public area on ground floor and private spaces on top floor.
In case of villa brought today, it's other way around: top floor has been replaced by a public area. Let's go on a real journey~

The villa is located in Sydney, and owner is an architect, in general, it should be a three-story building.
The ground floor is an enclosed garage and a stepped courtyard opens when you push door.
Climbing stairs, landscape plants are layered on top of each other, which enriches visual beauty of vertical space.
At back of courtyard is master's living room, from windows of which you really have a view of landscapes.
The living area is equipped with a dressing room, and design of bathroom is also very simple and textured.
According to spiral staircase to second floor you find yourself in a public space, where an abundance of light and a wide terrace instantly cheer you up.
The kitchen-dining area and reception area are designed as one unit, and marble dining table and breakfast bar are full of texture.
The space gradually expands from inside to outside, merging with outside landscape, which is very suitable for banquets and dinners.
Next to it is master's office, where grids all over facade are used as bookshelves, and there is also a small meeting area.
An open viewing balcony surrounded by greenery provides natural shade.
