Text description provided by the architects. It is a house for two families in the residential area at the edge of the mountain. Clients are eager for the view to the sea over the roof of houses around. So we decided to build the house with 3 stories on the limited flat area in the sloping site.
The structure is made of reinforced concrete. Through the various square openings perforated on exterior walls, they got the view to the sea, the forest, and the garden. The large garden arranged by the clients has gradually fit with the deep-colored building. They will enjoy their slow life in such natural circumstance.
It is a house for two families in the residential area at the edge of the mountain. For the views toward the sea over the surrounding roofs and green hills, we decided to build the 3-story house with various openings. Through the square openings perforated on exterior walls, they acquire the various views to the nature.
The first floor is designed for the elder parents, who like to take care of the garden in front, while the second and the third floor is for the younger family, who like to enjoy the resort like lifestyle. Since the top floor terrace is completely integrated into the space volume of the continuing interior space, the boundary of inside and outside became unclear.
Through many windows including the skylights, natural environment permeates into the living space. As the large undulating garden arranged by the clients will gradually fit with the deeply colored building, their slow lifestyle will be fruitfully matured.
