The ground floor of the building is occupied by a cafe. The wide arch openings allow for air to move freely throughtout the layout of the clay brick house. The courtyard, in addition, offers a nice space that is closed off but not entirely, creating an agreeable dynamic beteween outside and inside.

The second storey of the clay brick house is more private as the space is intended to be utilized as a home. The design launguage is kept consistent in the creation of both the coffee establishment and the living abode.
