For this small residence situated deep into the hillside, MYCC designed a strong frame that outlines the overall house form, which is then sandwiched with rusted steel panels. The perforated panels are printed with different shades to represent a fragmented piece of the forest.  These holes filter natural light during the day and conversely, filter artificial light during the night.  The interior’s lofted condition overlooks a grand living space.
