A straight bevel bounds the five-story private residence to define a building base that is wide in the front, narrow in the back, and shaped like a dustpan. The designer maximizes this unique architecture with elements of nature by overlapping natural and artificial lighting, adjusting spatial proportions, and connecting light wells, transforming original limitations of the building shape into advantages and constructing a large but heartwarming living place. One can experience the unity of people, land, and sea in this residence.
