Considering securement independence of interior space and visual connectivity the site with landscape westside, the mass was separated. Separated masses were filled with programs. In order to secure residential independence of two separated masses from outside, another mass was put. This mass acts as a pathway linking between other two masses. The house has a general residential ‘ㄷ’-shape of Hanok, and the mass acting as a wall has a hidden courtyard being visually connected with nature. And minimized openings to outside and an opening from the courtyard secure independence.
