The house was developed as a solitary solid structure. The woven steel support and crude timber formwork into which the solid was thrown have engraved the procedure of building into its surfaces, with tough lines in the solid and insights of steel fortification in the dividers and edges. As the early morning sun throws shadows over the textured even groups abandoned in the solid where the timber formwork once was, the memory of the development process itself denote the progression of time and helps the family to remember the exertion, longing, and acknowledgment of their fantasy.

With this building dialect of profound spaces and broad windows, emotional straight vistas of the greenhouses that encompass the house are encircled.
