The family wanted a Turkish Prayer room. The play of natural light and wind has been a special challenge in this house. Its a small house, in three levels. and each Room reflects the requirements of the occupants, but within the rustic feel.

The challenge was the stone walls and the cantilevered porch. to light the basement well in this small space, facing the challenges the by law of the defence area stated.
