The Architecture design of this house is the play between solid “Mass” and solid “Void”. Family members warmly live together in a 3 storeys building. Privately planned to have each own functional space and, at the same time , joined at the family area on the first floor.

The house planning is initially plan to have pocket decks sorted in the mass. They are pool, wooden porch, small garden and sometime, just space. The owner, himself , appreciate natural ventilation rather than air conditional one. So the house is carefully design to catch the natural air as much as possible, by orienting the void in such a way that, on a nice day, there is no need for air condition.

Cedar shingle, normally used for roofing, is reintroduced to perform in vertical gesture. The unique texture of the shingle volume, turns the solid cube masses into a light weight geometry volume. The mass seems to have cedar brown feathers skin.

The wooden house pendulum clock is one sample.

There are elements of the late modernism and tropical architecture in the ingredients.  Maybe, the simple conclusion is , A Nostalgia Architecture to live in.
