The design is based on the archetype form of a house.

The concept is composed of a study of seven different sections with different shapes.

The core concept of seven sections creates a continuity of exterior and interior spaces that correspond to each other.


The design creates spaces transforming the inside outside relationship and developing a form which questions the extroverted and introverted nature of a house.

The interior circulation orientates along the main axis of the building and makes the flow of different spaces inhabitable.

Various patios and openings give divers light in the rooms.

Internal view connections give the experience of totality for all rooms in the building.
