This small structure for a textile designer combines an atelier on the ground floor with a residence upstairs. The complex boasts a very large outdoor terrace which is half covered by a sunroof. When the weather is nice the owner is able to completely open the windows of her atelier, fusing inside with the outside and allowing her to produce large textile works in the two-story-high outdoor workspace. A vertical louver screen of spliced bamboo surrounds the terrace and provides privacy.
