The investor has been here since her childhood, it is considered as the birthplace of family members. The Plan to rebuild the house started since 10 years ago, however, has been postponed, due to some unexpected reasons. After 10 years, the construction is implemented by an absolute new design. To build the house is to realize the Invester’s wish: to strengthen the bond between everyone in the family, especially, to create a home, where her old mother enjoys seeing her children and grandchildren playing, living with each other.
