Main façade of the house is the form of cross-cast concrete beams are shaded from the outside with the function of blocking rain and sun also being a multi-functional level to sit or place bonsai pots inside. The combination of ventilation tiles and insect-proof mesh is a membrane protection, like a huge mosquito net covering the inner family activities. Finally, in this project, we want to express new concepts in architectural thinking in accordance with the local context.
