Decorative breezeways rest above doorways as the hallway leads its way through the inviting formal living room and into the dining and kitchen spaces of the home that benefit from air-conditioned comfort as well. Creating the look of a chapel-like canopy above, the pitched VJ lined ceilings that dominate this area flow to an outdoor terrace through large bi-fold doors.
