Ground Floor Plan

 The furniture is design simply and easy to make. To save the cost, the owner has bought the material and make all of them. Therefore, the cost for this part was saved significantly.

The front and back yards are the buffer space to reduce to hot from outside environment. The front yard is a relaxing area such as for morning coffee. This is the place that wind, sunlight and the shadow of the brick wall meet each other.
