Text description provided by the architects. When the project developed, the client requested a house which does not have too much opening to outside.
They wants their own private space, but they get uncomfortable without feeling each other’s presence. So that, one opening " void" was placed at the center of the house, which is the main space of the house
This space is open up to the sky, so it is completely outside and does not have specific function. However, this void brings the light to all the space in the house and parents who lives first floor can feel the life of their sons who are in second floor.
We would like to design the house which family can feel the cycle of the seasons, weather, light, and so on, through this void space, even though there are few window on the facade.
