We made a large volume roof with a continuous eaves and set back window holes. The daughter is living in the big roof and her parents is living under the roof. The big roof gives different characters for the top and bottom space.

The surplus space of the roof is designed for a high side light for the 1st floor. That makes the 1st floor is filled with charming day lights and quiet environment. The 2nd floor is a large attic style space for children playing. The arrangement of the windows is to fit the pattern of the exterior wood chips.
