Entry Description

My concept of M4-house is: protecting privacy and security; creating a happy and safe space for family;and making full use of site.To make full use of site, I make parking space for bicycles and cars as a whole without using conventional fences and carport. I design a large courtyard to bring sunshine and wind into interior. I planted trees in the courtyard to make balcony terrace a whole with courtyard and protect the privacy. Also the family can feel the changes of season in living & dining room.In day time, the sunlight going through leaves from atrium makes living & dining room very friendly and harmony. In night, I used indirect light in handrail of stars to make the space beautiful. Appearance has masses with four differences level that creates sense of rhythm and connectivity by connecting red cedar masses with bold black frames.
