From the architect. Since there is a lot of snow in winter, terraces are not suitable. We wanted to create a huge roof for the house volumes, which can cover the common space protected from the cold weather.

When the normal cubic volume diverges, a space will be formed in between and people feel welcomed by the warm and large space. The unique branched shape from the outside will symbolize as a comfortable place in a contemporary way.
