This was simple and familiar. We then proceeded to twist the core of the house to achieve a new design that fits into the natural environment, such as slopes and trees, surrounding it. Living quarters for each family were clearly separated, while still maintaining convenient contact with one another. The concept of the design was to allow the house to age naturally and have its beauty evolve. As time goes by the brass will change from gold to brown and eventually turn to black while the gold teak will fade in color as it ages.
