Prefab concept was chosen to minimize the land disturbances and maximize the resources used in the construction. It took 8 weeks for the production period, and the eco construction was then sent to the site completely with all appliances installed. Some features were chosen from sustainable materials, including bamboo radiant floors, ash cabinetry, etc. Sustainable energy source is also provided by photovoltaic panels over the carport. Outdoor living space is provided to create a strong connection with the surroundings.
