We aimed to build a place where architecture and humans are integrated into this atmosphere. Hence, we came up with an architectural renovation with simple and flexible shapes. Traditional details such as shutters, close up wooden doors, purlin structure with tiled roof have been integrated into modernism space in order to create different perceptions from various perspective.

The large surface covering the exterior acts as a protective boundary to ensure the occupant’s privacy. The edges become less solid due to adaptation of visual methods that allow light and sound to go through. Residents are always able to maintain the relationship between inside and outside of the house by the openness of these boundary sections. Thus, the act of opening or closing contributes to diversify and identify the house's appearance.
