Text description provided by the architects. The project is easily accessible via freeways and highways. Advantageously, it is located high up, resulting in a scenic city view and the evasion of some noise pollution.

Plan 01

The feeling of spaciousness is the main intent behind the design. Therefore, the space in the house is divided with a symmetrical concept. Complicated lines are also pared down to promote ease of motion. Additionally, high quality materials are utilized so that it is appealing from afar and is a feast for the senses up close.

We value the wellbeing of the residents, therefore, a number of features have been implemented with this in mind. The basic wooden structure and adhesives have a very low concentration of formaldehyde. Walls are built with architectural concrete, anti-bacterial and mold resistant paint, and green building materials. On top of that, a heat recovery ventilation system is installed to maintain the air quality and inhibit noise.

“Less is more” is the concept behind the design of the ceiling. Facilities such as lights, ventilation and smoke detectors are integrated to give the ceiling a clean and less crowded aesthetic. The lighting for the living room is an irregular double quadrilateral design. Open space lights can be controlled remotely due to the aforementioned smart system.
