Text description provided by the architects. Clent & Me: The client made many concessions to me, while helping me much. She often said I had an obsessive character “ why don’t you buy this house ?, I will sell it to you.”

Builder & me: I am sure he felt way over himself accepting my requests. I have great respect for this man. He was often drunk and used to say,  “ I am drunk again Mr. moon”.

The form is an inevitable result of maximization without any design intent. The codes and the shape of the land have designed the house.

Meshed: An exposed sextion is an exhibitionism of real-life situations. Covering the sextion with the panty-hose like material can be compared to a women wearing her stockings, even more emphasizing the sexiness… by hiding a little…

Expanded metal finish effect: The heavy concrete and the sharp angles are blurred by another skin of expanded metal.
