With enclosed walls and transparent floors as well as roof, the house opens to the sky and the earth, positions the inhabitant right in the middle, and creates a place for meditation.
Built vertically in layers, the overall footprint of the house is just 40 square meters. The internal structure consists of an internal skeleton made from a single steel column vertically running through the center of the house, as well as crisscrossing joists that dissect each floor into quarters. One quarter of each floor houses a steel spiral staircase that leads from the basement to the double-height second level, while the rest of the floor is made up of glass panels. The internal concrete walls are cast against a sanded wooden facade, with narrow horizontal slits in the walls allowing extra light to enter, as well as lighting fixtures which create stripes of light at night.
