Someone can tell me about the structure of this house (the roof, the column, beam etc) How can the two small column can support a large, thick roof? And what cover the surface which on the right of the last photo?

I tend to agree. Probably a pretty large I/H beam running from each corner, with smaller cross sections going from the windowless wall out to the large beam. I'm not sure if the fireplace is part of the structure though - without calculating anything I reckon the white column would be enough. Especially considering the heavy back wall, which would be able to take up a lot of the forces from the roof.
I assume that the roof is made by some type of light-weight material. It's not armoured concrete roof, isn't it?
