“THE CATER HOUSE”
The house is designed for a community chairperson and her family to reside. Besides basic functions, it accommodates a food production chain at its backside, transforming the ingredients grown in the public garden to fresh foods for the whole community to pick up freely. Plus, the stairs act as a core that connects all the floor plans in the building. They are opened on the top so the sunlight can shed in, producing a visual transition when passing through the staircases. Moreover, the exterior walls provide different extend of protection based on the programs on each floor. The programs become more public from the bottom to the top, thus the cover of the walls decreases accordingly.
