Well – lit rooms complemented by the light tone of the furnishing help accentuate the inner spatial volumes of this modern residence.
3. Gali lane house
A large overhang canopy shadows the staggering volumes of this residence. A huge panoramic glass wall overlooking the pool lends a sense of unbound openness to the plan.

The master bedroom facing the Indian Ocean with its panoramic window affords a breathtaking view to its residents.
