The house is designed for a couple, and is a wooden three stories house that is built at urban narrow site. Around the site is the mixed-use area where small houses, small factories, and small office buildings coexist together without any harmony.
The client requested a garden in the south side of the site, and decided to make a building three stories to secure required rooms.
It aimed at a quiet, soft space with the wood and the paint finished wall.
The space with a brightness and openness was secured, and the space was contrasted with spaces with density
