From the architect. Easy House is designed for a husband, wife and their son. They liked to have a high ceiling room for their family gathering and simple bedrooms.The site is located in a new residential district surrounded by the mountains. TRU Architects designed the L-shaped house for embracing the good mountain view and natural light.

The contrast between the white main house and wooden pavilion is the key motif of the building exterior. The pavilion is the family room which interior is also finished with plywood panels.
