Inside the house, the architectural team “cut” a three-storey square through the diagonal direction of the section, providing natural ventilation and reducing the use of air-conditioning.
In the first floor, the living room blends with the greenery outside. Greenery inhabits every corner of the house, which is built a thick block shape, creating a private and quiet space. Each floor is a mini indoor park. The trees provide a cool shade and blocks the house from the heat or direct sunlight, which lowers the temperature on summer days.

The roof beams casts linear shadows into the house's interiors while allowing natural light into private spaces.
With the cool idea of bringing trees into the house, the project won the Architecture – Environment – New Category of Architizer A+ Awards. This is an architecture award established by Architizer, the largest community of architects in the world since 2013. After a year full of challenges, Architizer's A+Awards 2021 honors architects and architects with striking ideas and strive to create a more sustainable living environment in the future.
Before that, the house also won DFA Design for Asia Awards 2020, Dezeen Awards 2019 and FuturArc Green Leadership Award 2019.
