Set in the country of a small farming village, this house was designed for a young family of middle class with a young parent and three daughters. Studio Architect Shuji Hlsada tried to create a ‘Place’ more than ‘Space’ for their life and a certain direction of a ‘Image’ for their selection any furnitures + making a garden, a terrace and so on freely. Shuji Hlsada decided to use almost all wood as a structure and finishing material. He hopes the exterior’s wall will be covered in ivy in the future.
