At the front, there are two bedrooms facing the road. The kitchen can be found near the empty plot of land while the parking lot is located near the parking lot of the sister’s house.

At the back of the house, a large garden is used as a green area for the homeowner to plant vegetables and fruit. This area takes up more than half of the total space so the house has limited utility space only. Therefore, the house must be pushed to the front of the plot to leave enough space for the garden.

The roof of the house is designed in a flat form to create a utilizable rooftop. With an unequal height, each part of the rooftop can cover the living space of each room as the rooms’ height is different according to their suitability and sizes.

The praying room’s ceiling is the highest part of the house that can create different levels on the ceiling landscape

Being close to the tree’s branches, the concrete rooftop garden can create a special experience of touching plants.

The land size of the house is 155 sqm while the utility space is 230 sqm.

The gray granite-pattern porcelain tiles cover the house’s outer surface but penetrate within the grid pattern randomly. This can create small voids to let the light shine through the house. There are also pieces of synthetic wood around the house.
