Floor Plan

We put a house to the west of the site, placed a big garden on the east side with the private road between neighbor’s site, and treated a house and a garden equally. We gathered up the rooms on the east side to be next to a garden and secured lighting and the ventilation, and the rooms and a garden had a relationship in each.
