Entry Description

The location is a small plot of land measuring 40.2㎡,in a densely-developed area surrounded by three-story residential buildings. The client was also concerned about the difference in environment that would come with the lifestyle change of moving from an apartment building to a detached house. Specifically, the concern was the sudden emergence of "levels" within the client's lifestyle. For that reason, planning started with the knowledge that in order to make this new lifestyle an enjoyable one,the house needed to be "bright" and to allow the client to have a sense of their family's presence.
