The glass house is condensed with multiple rooms of various functionalities and in order to balance the busyness, it is executed with minimalist approach. 

Transparent walls convey a sense of unity of internal areas, as well as wholeness with the external space and amplify the contrast between hot climate and the cool interior. 

For achieving a privacy in a single room, it may be skirted with remotely controlled white panels, spread with simplified oriental ornaments. 

Shadows casted by these traditional outlines augment the particular character of the house. 
The miniature waterfalls drop at the entrance door and in the backyard pool. Small gardens symmetrically break up the space adding organic atmosphere to the house.
