We took mountain as inspiration, supplemented by geometrically staggered advancing and retreating surface, opening a dialogue between the architecture and nature. We prioritized earthquake resistance and safety with raft foundation, S.R.C. structural, and aluminum cladding roof as the project is located in the seismic belt. In addition, we heightened the building and the wall, and took advantage of the height difference to enclose a moving waterscape. Continuing the simplicity in the interior, with french windows and simple furniture, creating a comfortable and Zen-like mansion.
