Text description provided by the architects. This 3-storey intermediate terrace house has a unique rotating screen on its front elevation. Its cross section has an aerodynamic boomerang shape that serves to deflect wind on one side.

On the other side the screen is clad with timber to give privacy. So the occupants can rotate the screen according to what they need. This also gives the facade an ever changing pattern that corresponds to the mood of its users.
