Description

S-shape plan one-story villa, enclosing the garden along the site extending north to south and letting in light

I arranged the gardens into two hollow parts with an S-shape plan that was fully extended into the site, used rich green and plants as borrowed scenery, and let the light come inside the house, which is a spatial structure for spacious living while protecting privacy. To avoid humidity and positively take the wind into the house, the first floor is a piloti where both edges are supported by an artificial hill and piles.
