The challenge part of the design is to blend the heritage and contemporary design as the villa occupied by grandparents and grandchildren’s which is lake side situated surrounding by dense trees.

With careful considerations and design thinking in the process, a simple geometric mass shape was chosen and detailed in such a way with many interesting elements. Such as the use of wood, tile & steel for the façade. Sides of the house that is exposed to direct sunlight, especially from the west side are filled with spaces or architectural details that can help reduce the heat. Such as wooden louvers, planter boxes, wide window for air circulation etc. This is considered to be successful because actually, the rooms can achieve a good temperature comfort even when not using the air conditioner.
