The challenge of welcome, integrity and cooling was solved with the use of fog.

“Fog cooler off the courtyard while shielding from inquisitive neighbors”, the architects site Dezeen writes about the house.

– The rooms are placed in relation to the need for privacy and importance, while at the same time the areas for the daily use of the family are intermittent, Alafriz expands.
