From the architect. Inset House is derived from an Intersection concept that takes place in a Residential Building, where “Flying Garden” becomes a deliberately inserted object to the front of the building to provide various benefits for this house when inhabited by its inhabitants.
Visible face of the house inserted by “Flying Garden”

Starting from the problem of the west facing house, Architects try to explore the Fasade and the front of the House into an area that can exploit the heat of the afternoon sun light coming from the west. Starting from the 1st floor sheltered by the 2nd floor overstack far enough so that the heat of the western sun will not touch the main room on the 1st floor of this house, the heat will be stopped in the informal guest area equipped by the pool and the garden as the cooler.
Visible overstack on the 2nd floor becomes the main cover of the 1st floor of the west sunheat, equipped with parks and ponds as the cooler Still about the strategy of blocking western sunheat, the 2nd floor we tilt the massing not to collide perpendicular to the heat of the afternoon sun, we give also the second skin of a striped wood as the main obstacle of heat. Behind the second skin we also give the “slit” window opening to reduce the incoming heat. This can be said to be a “layered protection and ploy” to fight against the heat of the western sun which is the main issue.
