Isolated stands in roadside, almost completely closed facades with transparent floors and roof, this concrete and steel building is unique and filled with criticism.

Inspiration from architect:

With enclosed walls and transparent floors as well as roof, the house opens to the sky and the earth, positions the inhabitant right in the middle, and creates a place for meditation.

Vertical transparency visually connects all the utilities,ductworks, and furniture, including staircase, into a system of domesticity and provides another reading of the modern theory of “Architecture as living machine”.
