There was the most common farmhouse with four arranged rooms before rebuilding.

The grope of the concrete house that developed from a traditional farmhouse is the principal objective of the design in this project. Simplicity is the charm of the old farmhouse, including eaves and the opening that controls the house environment and a layout of the rooms that are regarded as structures together.

The architect comes with a bearing wall structure that can create a wide opening in all directions to replace the farmhouse characteristic with concrete. It is a wall structure that is reinforced “the box” such as storage space and arranged radially too.
