The advantage of the place is the space at the front and the back of the house, with more nature approaching like garden. Landmak Architecture decided to add a kitchen block at the back with the roof as the terrace for the master bedroom on the second floor.
The old balconies at both end of the house are skinned with ventilation brick block, inside this skin is the green space for rain, wind and sunlight to shine through. This in a way can be seen as a cocoon, where we still have access to nature but also appreciated the security factor.
