Given the context of the site, it is not possible to have a view of the sea from the 1st-on the ground floor, the 2n/a-the ground level has an ocean view but not easy to keep privacy from the back street, and only the 3rdrd-ground level has a full view of the ocean. Depending on the condition of the site, each floor is designed differently. The 1st floor has minimal floor space with concrete columns deformed to create diagonal movement to enjoy outdoor activities, the 2nd floor has rooms like concrete shells and the 3rd floor has maximum floor space through a door -overhang with a light wooden structure. Then the 3rd floor has a panoramic view of the ocean as the main space of the house.

On the 3rd floor, there’s also an ocean-view tub on the private deck, and a fully open wooden sash makes the living space, open kitchen, cantilevered DJ booth and the terrace connected to take advantage of the integrated panoramic view space.

Responding to the different contexts of each level of the site to maximize the site’s potentials leads to the design logic of stacking different volumes with different materials. As a result, the house has a charming animal look with wooden heads and concrete regs that look like animals formed by following natural logic such as gravity, function or their purpose etc.
