Design intentions
The rectangular cube has emerge from the bank of the lake to capture the view across the ripple of the water towards the lush greenery beyond.It is a place relax and rejuvenate yourself,and enjoy the nature. The main structure is concrete and bricks raised from the bank of the lake to get the maximum benefit of the view. The wide glass panels and elevated floor allows you to capture wide perspective from the living room and bed rooms as well as it links the nature and the building together. The simple cube added the contrast to the surround by its own shape and its reaction to the lights falling to the building during the day. In the morning it is started to glitter with the rising sun light and hide in the noon with direct sun in barren bank of the lake, The evening is different falling sunlight and shadow make romantic atmosphere.
