NO Residence is a single house with a basement and 2 storeys above ground. The house was designed for a family of 3 generations and was completed in 2016. The main feature of this house is the external facade. It is finished with randomly patterned porcelain tiles, which beautifully reflects the ever changing light and the colour of the sky, the sun and the clouds, shimmering and responding to the time of the day, weather and the seasons of the year.
