Entry Description

This is a living space renovated from an old house. I added new stairs and put them in the right furniture. Instead of adding the square, I actually decreased the original footprint. The idea is to give the space back to nature. I was trying to maximize the usage of the least processed materials. Through the design and the choice of local materials, I try to reduce carbon emission and consider how ecological elements, time, and the overall environment into our project to reach a healthy living with zero formaldehyde.
