Floor Plans

I wanted to show nature attractively by making up and down space.
From any place in this house, you can enjoy a different scenery.

Solution:

Put a cylindrical volume rise on the landscape.
Divide it in two parts: in the upper space are living room, kitchen and bedroom ,and lower space  a garage and washroom facility.
And in the wall some cuts are carefully made so that you can enjoy the scenery around.
