Taiwanese architect Kris Yao designed 'cocoon', The next generation Asian best home design, based on the protective covering of the same name. It consists of two main spaces a shell and a core. Series of arched steel beams construct the contour of the shell. Between the beams are bamboo and steel tubes laid out in a random fashion. On the inside of the shell a layer of moveable fabric stretches to provide shading. The core is divided into three separate levels which consists of a master bedroom with two terraces, living room, a study, a game room, gym and a kitchen. Between the core and the dining room is a swimming pool and Jacuzzi. The terraces of the master bedroom connect the inside to the outside.
