The house also has a facade that appears like a waterfall that flows downward and scatters light and fills the air with freshness and without a doubt, the facade is one of the things that make the modern home look breathtaking.

The house’s glass block facade weights around 13 tons. Due to the fact that if the supporting beam was constructed of concrete, it would be of massive size, the architects pre-tensioned a steel beam and gave it an upward chamber by employing steel frame reinforced concrete.
