The building has 3 floors, the pilotis and the tenant on the first (ground) floor, residence on the second and third floors, these floors are combined gently by skip floors. I designed the facade simple and put the entrance tube on 1/3 of the ground and the open space for the others not to oppress passers-by. In this area, people hold events often and then this pilotis can be used as multipurpose space for neighborhood.

The section of the residence, private space and water surroundings are on the second floor, living, dining and kitchen are  on the third floor. There is a glass case for stairs between living and dining space, it divides one room on third floor but let visual line through. Also, the living space adjoin two balconies on different kinds of level.

When the owner have home party, people can move freely in one connected space but there are some areas that have different mood with different people. Moreover, these balconies are surrounded by walls, so that people don’t have to care outside’s glance.

The ceiling is high and there are windows on the high level to let daylights in because this house is surrounded by buildings on three sides. This house is like a deep well, shut out by walls but it gathers sunlight above the sky. The idea matches this site condition.
