Single-Family Residential Lot 38  



The villa concept is a response to the unique site. The curving river inspired the curving glass wall of the living room and roof terrace. The building form extends to create the entrance court. The courtyard and the entrance foyer reinforce the ‘journey home’ experience. The living room becomes the focus and the destination. The design approach emphasizes the sense of movement, light and views from all points in the villa. The architecture combines the Chinese concept of unification within nature with western ideas of a contemporary, affluent and sophisticated lifestyle.
