According to architects, the aim of the design was to achieve spatial harmony, maintain family tradition, respond to the local climate, and provide a contemporary lifestyle tempered by the benefits of a living tradition. It is really a clever exercise in balancing privacy and community within a total floor space of just 220 sq meters, Habitus Living commented.
