We designed the bigroof which is like a soft shawl which gently covers the house to ensure good ventilation and lighting with simultaneously keeping client’s privacy.

The shawl roof smoothly connects living ridge, tea room and parking space. From the living client family can see not only the inner garden but also the broad plum grove over the big roof.

The shawl roof makes three outside space that is inner garden, spot garden and terrace. The three spaces make relation between inside and outside of the house so intimate. It provides a good sense of openness and broadness and client family can feel size of inside the house larger than real. In addition client family can easily have much more eye contact each other and much communication and better life together under the same roof.

In summer the shawl roof cuts strong sunshine and entrain cool air. In winter the shawl roof entrain sunshine and store it into the earthen floor to get direct gain.
