In the Dragon Lake House, the land, layout and luxury accoutrements are as one. The spaciousness and the apt use of natural light that characterise the courtyard are motifs that are revisited throughout the home. The living room, for instance, spans two storeys vertically, bestowing upon it a singularly high ceiling and an accompanying sense of freedom. Another aspect of the Dragon Lake House to be cherished is the fetching aplomb with which it blends the very best of the East and the West. Its enchanting Chinese tea room, Chinese kitchen and Southeast Asian-style guest room are all masterfully counterpointed by corresponding Occidental touches, most notably in the distinctly Westernstyle second kitchen and guest room, and the fine array of Italianate furniture and fittings, such as dining chairs from Poliform, pendent lamp form Baccarat and audio equipment from B&O.
