This house sits on a narrow plot typology that extends backward. The owner of this house wants to have an ideal tropical house for family living even though the plot of the house is located in a modern-style architecture residential area.

The house’s main form is an “L” shape. There is a green area in front and backyard of the house that can create good air circulation. A hipped roof is supported by a steel structure to present a tropical concept.
