The main principle of the house is to create passive cooling by optimizing light penetration and air flow into the whole house through building massing configuration, solid and void facade, and material.

The basic building massing configuration is to divide the house into 3 building masses to avoid bulkiness and maximize natural light and air flow. Building mass 1 will incorporate living room, master bedroom and 3 bedrooms. Building mass 2 will incorporate dining room and building mass 3 will incorporate service area.

The private courtyard is one of the highlight of the house, that is not only become a greenery but also become a flexible space for the residents. This courtyard unifies main spaces in the house by having direct physical and visual access from dining room, living room and master bedroom. Having a simple yet elegant landscape makes this courtyard is easy to maintain.
