First,there is a local rule that should set the wall away from the site boundary by 1meters. Second,parking method is limited. Because the road in front of this site is a slope and there is an existing retainig wall. And third,west side of this site is relatively open.The western house of neighboring is away.

Then, it was able to plan the entrance in center of this house by arranged a long open approach at west side. It enabled planning effectively. This house is small. So that priority is decreacing a corridor and increasing a space. The first floor has living/dining space, kitchen, utility space and bath room. The second floor has two private rooms, study room and closet. Each floor can pass through around stairs.
