So the planning in the house as a mix used spaces those are make the relationship between each space such as the living area is related with the pond and the landscape surrounding. We designed the house that encourages people to use the space outside building, so it will save the energy in the house. The overall that we designed following and based on the sufficient theory, and also optimized using the natural energy such as sunlight, wind ventilation.
So, this house will encourage people to interact with each space by connecting with the landscape between each function, it means the whole site will be a house. “The people will perceive, it is not a house, but people will be a part of the nature and also to be a part of sufficient life.” The materials that we provided for the house is a local material and easy to construct such as concrete column, wood oor and also the bamboo that is the friendly environment
