The project is located in a rural residential area with green hills stretching around. With the same density as that in a city, the relationship between local residents is much closer. The architect has to come up with a solution to provide enough privacy for living as well as keeping in touch with the community.

A suspended wall is built at the road side to create a buffer between the outdoor space and the interior. It leads people into the living space and acts as a bathroom courtyard to provide an open feeling. Through the wall, the interior and the exterior are connected in a comfortable distance. People living in could have a glimpse of the surroundings while passengers could feel the colorful life in the house without disturbing the residents.
