Beyond the aesthetic appeal, the homes in the series are often situated in remote locations, reflecting a desire for escapism and a harmonious blend of indoor and outdoor living.

Sustainability is a recurring theme, aligning with the celebration of nature, fresh air, and daylight in these unique homes. Family-oriented design is also prevalent, with spaces crafted to welcome guests of all ages.
