The project is situated on a very narrow plot, and bound by a small street and bamboo tree hill. Sitting into the hill, this single family house acts as both a retaining wall and dwelling place.
When it gets dark, lights from interior illuminate its outside vertical latticework creating ambiguities around the context.
