The artists had taken into account this aspect that the house is situated close to the airport and underlined it in its exterior by making it appear like an airplane hangar. This kind of construction does not just appear remarkable, yet is likewise very cost-effective because it does not need a lot of supporting walls or columns inside of the building and makes use of the corrugated galvanized steel technology.
