On the other side of the dining area is home to a spiral staircase with an artistic wire detail, giving the illusion of a puzzle, connecting the vertical spaces, and unfurling itself as one ascends to the upper floors. Skylight over stair well give space lighter appeal as well openness to space.

In the home gym, black and red are the chosen colors, and a large mural covers the wall.

In the media room, the upholstered walls are punctuated by wooden ribs and LED lighting.

The rooftop expands the entertaining spaces and includes a hot tub, tile flooring, and seating.
