The owner is a bridge engineering company agent working around the globe. Having long life abroad, the client had wished to own a residence which functions as a hub for the family and the parents.

The plot locates in a commercial area just around a highway. The vicinity is mixed with new and old stores and factories. The plot is surrounded by medium-size buildings and apartments which assign us a hard task of how to deal with sunlight. The facade consists of the combination of glazed blocks, sharp sashes and top lights. The diagonal wall on the frontage shapes an unique proportion.
