Appreciations towards SAI Architectural Design Office for providing the following description:


The 65 square meters site is located in the fire prevention area, which requires for more fire proofing solutions. Thus firewalls are used to enclose the building space as well as supporting the building. The living space rotated 45° and created 4 courtyards against the firewalls. The open courtyards function as light well to let natural light go softly into the living space. There are also indirect lighting in the courtyards which provide comfortable illumination to the interior during night time. The four courtyards could also be used as extension of the different rooms and provide space for parking, etc.
