N8-house [house of ⅢBox]


The concept of this designing is to ensure the privacy and safety, and also create a living space which makes family members happy and easy. Each room is independent of another, and perfectly blending with the nature.

N8-house Residence

At night, the shadow of houses will change with the light of the moon and stars, just like expressions on people’s face. The columns on the outside walls are made of inorganic concrete, it seems rhythmic from outside. While the walls, beams and front door are mostly wooden. With the night coming, lights are lightened up; the house looks warm and homey. Because of the wooden cantilever, the first floor seems floating, which makes the house fascinating.

The columns connect the living room with outside with columns, which makes out a feeling of harmony.The wooden front door gives out a warm atmosphere, going through it, one would step into the living room and see the courtyard through a huge class, which gives people more senses of nature in daily life. Around the privacy garden, which places against living room, there are the kitchen and dining room.

In living room, there is a skylight on the ceiling of the 1st floor, which brings the nature light into house. Looking from outside, the shape of the house is not like usual 2-floors house. So, it looks quite special. This design make the best use of place, which tighten the arrangement of rooms, it enable a better chance of communication among family members.
