The base of the lava attaches the house directly to the particular site. It appears as if the roof planes are floating amidst the clouds. The overhangs which are broad directly protect the inner surface from the scorching sun. The window walls join together both inside and outwards and it makes the house cool and allows the breeze. A stream of toughened lava flows in between the site.
