Text description provided by the architects. The cottage in the silent village between mountains. We wished to make the silence a space. It seemed to me that the concrete block is a silent material compared with concrete. Silence is made by the thing being alive It becomes coldness if there is no breath of a life there.

The block fit this place nicely. There are no fittings in the opening of the outside wall. Brock was just merely stacked, and the hole was merely vacant there. Quiet scenery exists.
