Text description provided by the architects. This 3 bedroom home for a musician-composer, holds a 150 m2 loft space as it's 2nd floor, overlooking its lush,  surrounding of green rice paddies and coconut trees. The minimal shell of the house amplifies the panoramic  experience of its surrounding landscape.

The design emerged from a desire to translate the construct of a single sound wave into an overarching architectural gesture that will define the interior and exterior spatial qualities of the house.

 'As feeling like being inside of an instrument' most inside surfaces are rendered as wood patterned surfaces. The ceiling drops down in equal manner to improve acoustics and to indicate the entrance as a gesture. This element adds to the sculpted, interior experience of the space that is free of structural excess.
