Text description provided by the architects. The particular site possesses a very wide view of the sea, so I had difficulty finding the cornerstone. This led me to a solution where I lifted the entire building and located the entrance at most natural approach possible. I used this position as the structural core and starting point for the overall design. The upper part above the pilotis supported by the RC is a hybrid structure constituting a polyhedral roof frame, made of wood and steel-frame truss. The footprint is slim and long, forming an L-shape. The private zone, which includes the master bedroom, is on the approach side and the main room has a 12-meter opening which enables a panoramic view toward the sea, with the entire structure(5m×20m) lifted above ground.
The wooden lattice KANGU (furniture used to design or control a space) leading up from the entrance of the RC core on the first floor is a staircase creating a vertical flow. This also serves as a boundary for the main room space, one that does not require a partition or door. Above, one finds a gallery leading up to the loft. The narrative expressed by the spatial changes from the polyhedral roof frame and the KANGU result in creating a sense of unchanging stability a sense of unhurried joy of living in the villa.
