This project started from such words of the clients “we need to have our own base.”  The art-event planning office is at the first floor and the 2nd or 3rd floor are dwellings .  It is a small complex of a office and a house, built on the site of 33m2.

On the first floor,office opens to the town,on the 3rd floor ,living space opens to the sky and on the 2nd floor ,private space is complicated and intimate but not closed. And the stair case which pierces through these floors .

This small building of the maximum volume allowed on laws and regulations is a place like a base of living where they protect themselves, associate with others, earn their dairy bread, connect to the nature, and gaze themselves.
