Looking at the site context, it is not possible to have a view of the sea from the 1st-floor level, the 2nd-floor level has an ocean view but not easy to keep privacy from the back street, and only the 3rd-floor level has a full ocean view.

The 1st floor has a minimum floor area with de-formed concrete columns to create a diagonal movement for enjoying outside activities, the 2nd floor has bedrooms like concrete shells and the 3rd floor has maximum floor area by a cantilever with lightweight wooden structure.

The responses for the different contexts of each level of the site to maximize the site potentials lead to the design logic of stacking different volumes with different materials.

As a result, the house has charming animal looks with wood heads and concrete regs which are like animals are formed by following natural logic such as gravity, a function, or their purpose, etc.
