Comfort in Context

Best Constructed Private Residence

About the project
Due to the location of the residence, we knew there would be numerous local wild animal and insect species. With this project, we wanted to go further with its connection to the environment.
Looking from above at the project you can see it is surrounded by nature in every direction. That nature is not hindered by a boundary but instead is seamlessly blended with the house. Nature and the location of the project are also used to passively reduce the electricity of the house thereby reducing its carbon footprint.
A green slope was created under the suspended wall on the second floor of the main building facing the southward hilly land. The natural grassy slope in the courtyard echoes the greenness of the hillside slope. What I could do was minimize the effect of the internal physical lighting.
The exterior of the building is made of breathable and environmentally friendly paint with galvanized steel. The interior design is not extravagant and tries to remain ethical and sustainable.
