Compact House

“Cities are getting bigger as more and more people move in, and there will always be a needs for house with respect to general quality of life.”

– Alan Dundes


Although situated in a dense urban area, a house still has to be a comfortable nest, protecting occupants, make everyone feel closer in harmony, and most importantly, a sense of ‘at home’ in the house, so that every occupant spends every second of their precious time to be with family at home in the midst of urban activity.

In response of the characters above, split level was used as a design solution to create the impression of widespread room, added with natural touch such as fish pond and greenwall on the main staircase.
