From the architect. This project is a home that was easily built on a low budget with minimum effort and total warranty.

The spatial model was inspired by traditional chinese architecture with three linked rooms building a domestic space. The rooms are linked yet separated. As the result of the spacial game, the room, which was modified during construction, is not directly represented by the final skyline.

This is a sustainable and low energy home that is warm during the winter while cool in the summer.
