The various scenes stay together.
The beginning was finding the site. Finally I found It in the residential area on the cliff after seeing some sites proposed for. There is impressive view such a far-off mountains and a town beneath. But you are aware of the close being, if you sit on the ground. You hear the bird song and the sound of train below you at the same time. Not so far nor so close, coincidentally, the various distance of scenes are coming to here. I think this expance of various distance will bring the resident the discovery and the drama in daily life.
First, I drawn the house toward mountain and create close scenary in front of it. The meandering outline connects the inside space and outside one, deepens the depth of close scenery. The window which was opened at many point brings the far-off mountains range, the woods over there and the ground beside into their daily life, the difference of ceiling height also gives the order for them. Because the distance to window is changed, You can not see only one scene but feel a a lot of scenes.
Since two years after completion. In bare garden, with house position and window’s locations as clue, the resident had planted trees for little by little, created the earth floor and have raised them. If we call the architecture as union of building and garden, this house looks as it is. It is because of the arrangement of things, the circulation and the remaining plants have the rationality of the passage of time. Moreover it harmonize with the scenery that passed the time with it such a town and a woods below.
In here, the scenes with people will be clipped and these moments creates the history of family. I hope the architecture would be just the incentive for it.
