The image is to integrate the inner space with the outer space by inserting voids.


The terrace that faces the living is inserted into the house, and this space like a court is the center of this house.

Light and the wind brought from this external void would go to the whole space including living room, Japanese-style room, entrance.

With the light from the slits in the court, the entrance hall would become a calm space with order.


The inner space is light and open due to the light from the external terrace.

To make this terrace a space with privacy where they would enjoy with no care to the outer space,

the external space was covered with the grating of square lattice FRP.


The terrace is a plaza for the family.

In this two-stories void with white wall, they would feel the transitional changes of light and shadow.
