Called Single Family House St Joseph, the exposed concrete structure features irregular-shaped windows and sits on four supporting legs.

A shallow pit has been dug underneath the hovering building and can be utilised as a car port or storage space.

Despite the flat planes of the exterior shell, the interior space features a series of faceted walls, forming oddly-shaped rooms and windows.

The interior spaces are finished completely in white, with the exception of wooden flooring in some rooms and the treads of the staircase, which cantilever out of the wall.
