Lab House residents like to experiment with space and all its activities, especially those that support work-life balance with creativity and productivity. With land area extending backwards, the layout is compact with openness, blurring the boundaries between the outer and inner spaces by incorporating natural lighting and good ventilation. The building is made clean, minimal, simple, thereby reducing irregular shapes to maximize interior space. An open spatial or open-space layout makes the main room more functional in terms of flexibility, making space with a limited area feel more flexible. In the future, the back area which is currently a garden can be used as an area to build new rooms if there is a need for additional space in the future. Leaving one area behind for the house to grow is more efficient structurally, time and costly than increasing the number of floors.

At the entrance, there is a genkan or transitional area between the outer and inner spaces that is usually used to remove shoes, which is an important element of space, in today's era where hygiene and health are important priorities. When you have limited land but still want to have sufficient natural light, you can provide skylights as an alternative. In the main room there is also a window with a seat facing east, so you can get the maximum morning light even in the house. The large number of openings in the building eliminates the boundaries between the outer and inner spaces not only regarding the efficiency of electrical energy, but also for a healthier life both physically and mentally.
