The AW Residence is located in a busy intersection in a neighborhood, surrounded by tall trees. The house is viewed as an element of landscape, rising from the ground before dissolving with its surroundings. It is made out of black-painted bricks, to define the voluminous mass of the house, as a whole. The whole covering of the bricks also serves as a sound barrier from the streets and also as a screen to direct sunlight. The house has a semi-basement floor that is used for the service area, before continuing up to the public area in the ground floor.
