For the husband who loves the outdoors, from fishing to biking to barbecues. For the wife who loves reading, and a simple life. For their much loved pet retriever, who brings them comfort.
What they had asked for was a house where they could enjoy doing the things they liked, in the places they liked, but still be able to talk to each other. "A house where we can always feel each others' presence, under one roof."
The roof wraps all around the house, the wood wool cement boards and rafters under the eaves finished so that they're still visible (like a half-timber roof); the ceiling of the second floor is offset by the roof's slope, so that you can sense it even indoors.
The presence of their large roof fills the living room, bathroom, bedroom, terrace; no matter where you go in the entire house it's there. Even if they are apart, it comfortingly reminds them that they are always living under one roof.
The huge roof, symbolizing the couple's wish of being "under one roof," blurs the boundaries between inside and outside, bringing space, time, and family together.
Once created, architecture has significant influence on townscape,
surrounding people as well as the environment, regardless of its background.
It will remain on that ground for decades
whether it blends into the location or not, or if it’s treasured.
No just design or capabilities, but focus on various architectural essence.
Timeless longevity endeared for years, and guarding people’s lives…
this is the concept we pursue.
