Text description provided by the architects. The concept of this designing is to ensure the privacy and safety, and also create a living space which makes family members happy and easy.

At night, the shadow of houses will change with the light of the moon and stars, just like expressions on people’s face. The wooden front door gives out a warm atmosphere, going through it, one would step into the living room and see the courtyard through a huge class, which gives people more senses of nature in daily life. Around the privacy garden, which places against living room, there are the kitchen and dining room.
