25'x25'

The mission of this project is to design a two-story house on a 25' x 25' floor plan with less than 100 square feet extension.

The idea of this complex is to provide a connection between the exterior and interior on a small floor plan by applying interesting architectural elements to the building.

The lower level of the house is the public zone with a living room, bathroom, kitchen, dining room and access to the garden. The upper level of the house has a bedroom, balcony, and a hallway to observe the lower level of the house.

One of the main feature of this house is the stair case. It is built to gradually merge out from the exterior wall. It illustrate a perception of openness. From the inside, it creates an illusion of walking outward from the house structurally. At the end of the stair case to the upper level, one can observe the exterior view through thetwo glass wall connected by the angle of the building. Its an idea of walking outward and back to the inside of the house.

Another feature of this house is the triangular floor plan bedroom. One of the angle in the bedroom is a 40 degree. Two four feet width glass walls are built on both side of the angle to create a wider opening for a panoramic view to the outside. A reading area is also built in the bedroom, which contains a custom desk place underneath a window that open to the second floor balcony. This provides a connection between the private exterior space to the bedroom interior.

The kitchen has a semi circle counter top to create a better flow between the living room, dining room and the garden. In the dining room, a twelve feet long bi-fold door provides access to the garden. It also is an extension space for the dining area to the garden area.

At last, in the exterior, the overlapping fence is to create a playful feeling rather than a intense straight wall that fencing away the public and private space.
