The first floor consists of a number of wooden boxes that function as living room, dining room, bedroom, study room and bathroom, creating a continuous open space that offers opportunities for communication between family members, at the same time ensuring each individual have an independent living space. The size of each box is decided according to the height of people’s activities in different functional areas. The open space on the second floor is the kid’s bedroom and playground. Soft materials such as rugs and nets are used for the kid’s safety and also to create a warm and intimate atmosphere.
