The architect tries and discusses a lot of solutions with an intent hope to create a comfortable living space that can connect the members of the family to each other and also harmonize them with the natural surroundings. A house that has a lot of functions needs to be designed flexibly.

The house space is designed carefully to create the inside yard like “a heart”, separating the function areas of the house by natural factors. The rain and the sun are also brought into the house, inspiring people and give them an effort to meet friends, to cook, to play music, and to work.

The chairs, the oak wood handicraft table, and the bay window are designed by the natural curves. On the wooden surface, the light can bring out warm feelings and joy. Just like a lantern with yellow light bounce through glass tiles, this house offers a warm atmosphere at night for the neighborhood.
