Gatchi Gatchalian and Larcy Diaz are best known for founding Blugré Coffee, the home of durian coffee. As they celebrated the 10th anniversary of their popular cafe in 2008, they also moved into this modern tropical house.

Designed by architect Patrick Tan and interior designers Wilan Dayrit and Leah Lazana, the family home is unique because it does not have a living area! Instead of a living area, the first floor is completed with a spacious kitchen and dining area.
