Text description provided by the architects. The client requested a building for the married couple and their two children to live in, with a space for home office, at a site located in the suburb.

There is a plan for a large-scale facility in the adjacent property; and an arterial road with high traffic runs on the south side of the client lot.

Under such conditions, a spatial structure was considered to secure lighting and ventilation while assuring privacy throughout the future.

Daylight from the south side is taken into each room on the second floor by projecting them out from the roof surface, providing excellent lighting and ventilation scheme while securing privacy.
