I think one of the best parts of the front of this home is how the garage door appears to be a continuation of the street-side fence. With the garage buried within the hill the house sits upon, the design of the living quarters itself does not need to incorporate the garage. In so many home designs the garage all too often appears to be an afterthought or add on.
The private backside of this modern home with floor-to-ceiling windows and doors gives an airy and open feeling to this home. The line between outside and inside of each floor of the three-story house is blurred providing unobstructed sight-lines of the surrounding vistas beyond the pool.
