The sustainable  renovation project was intended to  penetrate the existing house on either side, also to create  extendable spaces of indoor outdoor living. The core of the original house was preserved and the extensions were done around it.  The crafted feel of the original building was maintained, combined with contemporary design. The final design is a flexible and continuous space design, maximizing the space into the canopy of the trees. Sustainable building materials were used, such as bamboo for flooring, recycled glass for interior countertops, etc. These kind of materials are natural and  provide little maintenance.

Another sustainable design concept applied in this eco construction is by maximizing the glass openings, to maximize the natural daylighting. They also provide a thin border between outdoor and indoor. A gorgeous glass staircase was also created to provide a transparent connection between indoor and outdoor living spaces. By these structure, the house will act just like a green house that may store heat gathered in the morning.
