The elevated site of this house makes it possible to expose the rock below and to excavate into the mountain. This rock was left exposed in the underground cellar walls. This house offers a luxurious residential design where the combination of furniture, interior, and other elements can create a comfortable and luxurious atmosphere.

During the day, the open-plan main bedroom layout overlooks the double volume living area. There is also a sliding screen that slides off the house wall at night, protecting the security and privacy of a couple. Supported by the best arrangement of lighting, a romantic atmosphere can be created in every room of the house.

Designed with some glazed walls and doors, the stunning views can be enjoyed right from inside the house. The use of different materials also creates a decorative appearance for the interior and exterior, such as bricks for the wall near the stair and rocks to decorate the dining area.
