Essentially a glass house sleeved in a concrete hull, the idea was to create open vistas without sacrificing privacy. The compact space visually extends beyond the bounds of what is encased in this glass house making it seem bigger than it really is. Openings on all sides promotes cross ventilation and increases air circulation while sunshade louvers regulate the amount of heat absorbed into the interiors coming from direct sunlight. An open layout which serves for the purpose of several rooms was also adopted to compensate for the compact space. The goal was for a low maintenance and low carbon-footprint house through smart layout.
