Besides the wood, ab House is also built with other different materials such as bricks and patterned tiles. The combination of bricks and woods can create an interesting structure in this house both inside and outside. While the patterned tiles are used to beautify the walls behind the bathroom sink. The glazed walls on the balconies and the back area of the house offer an easy way to see the views without the need to go outside.
