The U38 House is built next to the owner’s parents’ house. It is a two-story house with a swimming pool, working area, master bedroom, son’s bedroom, family room, dining room, and an open terrace.

As the owner and architecture himself wanted this project to be done within four months, he planned to utilize the steel structure on a 6 by a 5-meter grid to complete the work ASAP.

The materials used in the construction of the entire building were steel structure, painted plastered wall, brick wall, and wood lattice. All these materials made the house close to nature. To add more, the outer area of the house is decorated with plants and trees.

The house location is South East Asia, we all know the tropical climate of the area, considering these things only the screen of the house was decided. To protect it more the heat, the architect designed a long terrace on the side of the room and installed moveable recycled wood skin panels on the glass, which also create privacy for the family.

The interior of the house is kept more minimal and elegant, and the color palette is neutral with a grass top canopy on the car parking area. The wood panel flooring beside the swimming pool area adds a great charm to the place.
