The facade of this house looks like a cluster of stacked boxes. The design is used to house the family’s dialogues of spaces. The relationship between the house’s spaces echoes the communicating way of the family.

The house’s spaces communicate through compression and decompression, an exchange or pull of push, and the users’ relationship when they go through the spaces. Interlocking, volumetric, and panorama also affect the communication between the spaces.
