Sustainable Living Reimagined: 
Larger Living Spaces, Smaller Bedrooms

Discover the 16/8 Design Principle and the Bay House's eco-conscious architecture: The 16/8 Living/Resting Design Principle offers a fresh approach to home design. We spend 16 hours awake in shared spaces and 8 hours asleep in private bedrooms. This principle suggests prioritizing larger, brighter living areas while keeping bedrooms smaller, as they're mainly used in darkness. This maximizes enjoyment and promotes sustainable living.

The Bay House showcases sustainable modular design. Its five modules work together to reduce energy use and maximize flexibility of different property use case scenarios. The central atrium captures sunlight to passively heat the home. Double-glazed windows even inside of the house, heavy solid internal doors, and cross-ventilation further regulate temperature between moduls, minimizing the need for air conditioning.

This property embraces both spaciousness and sustainability. The 16/8 principle creates large, open living areas with exceptional stunning natural views. This design, along with energy-efficient features like passive solar heating, creates a luxurious home that prioritizes both comfort and environmental responsibility.
