Terracotta concrete is blending with glass wall and natural stone aspect. Surging wall at the façade with Korean touching style becomes good point from the first sight. The way things are used along the façade for enhancing chic and traditional atmosphere at the same time. The magic thing is large swimming pool installed along the house, it actually covered the whole main building which making the place looks floating because of surrounded by water area.
Laminating wooden ceiling is combined with glass wall and even glass flooring. Hidden light wooden storage is installed for making this décor seems clean and large. White space layout is used at another home’s side with broken white or let say grey staircase from concrete material. However, this house builds with two floors up with each floor reflecting the simple and natural interior thing. Moreover, there are not many furniture posit at this place since it must be keeping serenity and simplicity values
