Text description provided by the architects. The site is located on the top of the hill over a large lake. The view from the site is very panoramic and dramatic. So, the design began how to utilize the site in order to frame such a unique and a special view from the house. The living space is elevated on 2nd floor, and the large window provides a non-disturbing view with full of sun light. The bedrooms are located on the third. And from the first to the third floor, a cantilever stair connects all floors and creates an astonishing experience. On 2nd floor, two-floor void space bridges 3rd floor bedrooms and living room. This is designed to be a center of this house and space. This symbolic void, off course, is not only in the center of all the circulations meet, but provides a vertical openness as well as a feeling of one, a feeling of living as one family, which the client mostly intended.
