Designed to accommodate a family of five and their two pets, this modest house offers a comfortable living place that can meet the needs of the family for daily activities. It is an upside-down house with some public living areas. These areas are arranged over the top of private sleeping areas, creating open space, light, and views.

The house spaces are extraordinary although the house comes in a compact form. The program of this project also includes a deep garden which is 6 feet in size. This garden contains a Japanese tub, shower, and an outdoor fireplace. The living area, dining area, and kitchen are located on the same floor with an elegant window where the family can enjoy the view together.
