The music studio was requested in this house because the client is a well-known musician.The studio considers the acoustic quality by planning non-parallel walls (pentagon) of the reinforced concrete construction.
Each wooden room was arranged in surroundings of the music studio. This has two effects. The first is to have life with a focus on the music, the other is soundproofing to the neighbor. Each room has courtyard that slightly connected with the outside. As a result, all rooms face outside and obtain the daylight and breeze through the one of the courtyards. On the other hand, it protects privacy from the outside.
This house has a sort of elements such as the studio of reinforced concrete construction, each wooden room, courtyards, and rambling activity. Those elements are dramatizing of various life scenes.
