The location of this eco construction is a steep site. The first floor is designed to have glass walls, to provide extend access of the view. The design considered also that  people’s eyes from below would not reach the first floor, so privacy for this floor can be kept well. This level is used for some activities with friends, also place for bicycles. Kitchen and visitors’ toilet are also available on this level.

Some sustainable ways are used to control the temperature inside the house. A thermal storage system was set into the slab concrete, and also far-infrared radiation film floor heating system are provided  on the second floor. Natural ventilation will also help. Cantilevered balcony is expected to act as sunlight shade on summer. This eco friendly construction is also formed by using steel materials with maximum  100 kg for each material for carrying up to the site. This material will also provide strength and low maintenance needed.
