Situated on a corner site, this house has two facades with one additional facade facing the corner. In general, this house provides a variation of spatial experiences that well interpreted both in the plans and in the built form.

In the plans, the first floor plan consists of living room, dining room, one bedroom and compact inner court to maintain the natural light penetrates into the house. The second floor plan, which is crossing above them, has three more bedrooms and two bathrooms. Those rooms have exclusive access to the  small rooftop on the third floor.

In the built form or façade, the site's corner is emphasized by twisting the second floor to follow the corner axis, creating a "detached" box apart from the first floor. There is a  black box massing on the second floor, crossing the site towards the corner. Each structural column has been aligned to hold the twisted massing on the second floor without interfereing the spatial quality of the first floor.

It becomes a significat corner statement of the house that created to be “detached” or separate from overall massing, but still one integrated composition.

Apart from the corner strategy, this house has also a rich yet balanced combination of the buidling materials and colours. By using terracota rooster combined with textured white wall, some wood accent and black color for the statement, this house presents a monumental dynamic masterpiece in the neighborhood.
