For this residential architectural design project, the architect takes into account the utmost comfort of its inhabitants while seamlessly integrating with the surrounding natural environment. The location, situated between the bustling city and the majestic mountains, has greatly influenced the use of raw concrete texture and solid wood panels for the façade, instead of the more commonly used tiles and stone. The architects have aimed for a simple yet low-key design that beautifully complements and blends in with the neighborhood. The project provides a serene living space that takes full advantage of the breathtaking scenic landscape, offering a peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle of city life. It's a place where people can enjoy all the modern conveniences of the city while also experiencing the tranquil isolation of a peaceful sanctuary.

The building’s appearance is truly breathtaking, bringing together the rugged texture of fair-faced concrete and the warm texture of natural wood panels in perfect harmony. The architects' meticulous planning of the functional spaces is evident, with careful consideration given to the effects of different architectural orientations. The main living area is strategically located on the east side of the hill, providing ample natural light and reduced noise from the bustling traffic below. On the other hand, the balcony's curvature closely mimics the rolling mountain ridges, creating a stunning visual that seamlessly blends with the natural environment. On the west side, a sloping wall panel design maximizes the sun shading and filtering effect, effectively reducing the impact of the sun's rays on the living space. The vertical timber and horizontal steel lines on the façade are nothing short of a work of art, further enhancing the building's aesthetic appeal.
