This house was originally designed for a young couple who desired a compact house with all of the necessary functions for their modern lifestyles, as well as low construction and maintenance costs. While this project was terminated, an architect from Lynk redesigned the property to suit the needs of his family.

This house is structurally composed of two main sections with distinctive, contrasting textures and colours. Both compartments are different in terms of their structure and materials. For instance, the solid area was constructed from reinforced concrete and masonry for stability, and the lighter part constructed from steel framing with insulated infill, covered by fibre cement boards to reduce its weight and thickness.
