The transition between the living area indoors and the outdoor hangout is seamless thanks to the use of large glass windows and sliding doors.

What truly stands out in case of the Valiant House though is the brilliant use of whitewashed brick to usher in both textural contrast and pattern even as a stunning contemporary kitchen island in black along with a dark ceiling create a sense of sophistication.
