| CONCEPT

This is a 5-story house with a basement floor. The house has a simple plan. We made spaces with various heights and brightness, piled them up each other, creating a high-density volume. In this way we were able to make the best use of the floor area ratio. The living room on the upper floor is an atrium, inspired by the high-rise buildings of the metropolis in front of it. This living room space continues to the roof terrace three-dimensionally. All details, from kitchen to the washing bowl are thoroughly from concrete material. The non-bearing wall, which faces the street, is made of un-burnable wood.
