The floating canopy is the defining feature of Dancing Light Residence, made up at the bottom of tectonic shapes and is inspired by local geology and monsoon cloud formations. Kendle Design Collaborative designs a true sculpture, while effectively balancing the owner's desire for grandeur and intimacy by establishing the interior living spaces as a starting point
