The site is located between two rivers with a mountain behind. It is also surrounded by roads on all 3 sides leaving only north to the adjacent site. Moreover, because of this naturally made condition, wind breeze runs through the site from the mountain and rivers. Furthermore, it is this condition that lead the architect to make the house with an opening to all 3 sides along with neutral zone. This neutral zone between windows and louver doors on the edge of the house serves as a light, shadow and wind controller. Outside the louver doors, green surrounds the house while making a scene for the street and also serves as a green screen that covers the house from the surroundings.
