The floor, beside the window, is paved by pebble stones which give rebirth the spatial connection between the outdoor and indoor space. The design of the big windows spills the interior space with daylight, which creates the shining atmosphere. The style in the public area, composed of the living room, dining room, and kitchen, is the same as that at the entranceway, which is decorated in white that creates a simple and clean atmosphere. The wall, behind the couch in the living room, is made by teak wood which found the unaffected image.
