Design of residences has to deal with the delineation between the individual and the community realms or the public and private spaces and  has to articulate the transition and mediation from one realm to another.

 This House  built on a 60′ x 40′ site was the last one to be built in this street, which now has a high land value and place of ‘upper-income-two-sedan-car-family-community’. The design then is a conflict resolution. It departs substantially from the conventional and popular house forms and shuns dominant sloping or flat roofs.

The spaces were articulated defying the conventional right angle geometry to pack more space in the small volume flexing itself in three-dimension and delineates an informal and unconventional spatial experience within a tight urban situation.
