The small and narrow site has an existing big tree in the front of the property that contributes shading and great view for studio. With 4 meter width, the studio with a high gable roof tends to deflect the sun heat and provided extra and relaxed space for studio. Due to the limitation, a toilet is located in the middle of stairway to allow natural ventilation for every floor
