To ensure the second floor area, we first considered the size of the building by building-to-land ratio. Keeping waste to less than 1%, we planned the building to become the maximum area. Also the client demanded to have all the LDK, bedrooms, and bathrooms to be faced to the garden, we placed the wooden terrace to the south side, and the garden built in wellhole style from the first floor on the north side and laid the living room between them.

The rooftop can be reached by outdoor stairs on north side garden. To be able to watch the fireworks, we calculated the height of the building by the regulation for the height of buildings and achieved the best height. Within the regulation, the plan has being utilized to the maximum.
