Located in Tainan, Taiwan, the house is designed in a Y-shape, with circular windows covering the exterior.

At the top of the home (or the roof), the Y-shape provides the opportunity to have a swimming pool and a tiered outdoor space.

On the lower levels of the home are two children’s rooms, a master bedroom, and a guest bedroom, which are all stacked above a ground-level garden tea room, designed for entertaining. As you climb the stairs, other communal living areas reveal themselves.

All of the rooms have windows with views of the surrounding area, which is perfect as the home has been designed to be a weekend retreat for city dwellers.

Also taken into account when designing the home was the practice of Feng Shui, with the home sitting within a tranquil pool with small gardens and stepping-stone pathways.
