This house is located at the developed land in the mountains with the hight difference of 5m within the site and is blessed with bamboo forest at the foot of mountains in the east and city view in the south. To take advantage of this feature, we designed the building to over hang by 7m from the top to make it as a sky house which is supported by the core structure from the bottom. Upper side is used as a living space and the terrace is designed in the lower side. One can move up and down using the stairs inside the core structure.
