“We want a pentagon house." This was the request for a house that has been constructed around a regular pentagon living room and a studio. It is characterized by timber-framed building utilizing a pentagonal pillar as conceptualized by Studio PRANA and the master carpenter. Thus the shed roof is non-rectangular, also the eaves are non- horizontal determining a diverse and unique space inside. For the husband is a lover of books, music and orchids, and the wife is a researcher the house has been thought as an usual residence also for visiting family and friends as a pleasant place where to forget everyday life.
