architectural pursuer based the whole concept on six principles: 1. all of the building façade windows are eliminated to disconnect the structure from the city environment, a courtyard opening inwards at the center of the building optimizes the design of potential space programming; 2. by implementing the subtractive strategy, the building mass has been carefully arranged to achieve the courtyard that brings a natural element to enhance the living experience. vertical arrangements of the space elements are reorganized to fully optimize the functionality with visual interlacing; 3. the building mass has been divided into three main sections with human scale elements. a designated negative space for the courtyard and its tree is inserted to connect the transit to every single space of the house, along with the swimming pool.
