A small house for 3 persons family in the residential district where traditional form of house with gable roof is conserved.

This project aims to create a moderate division without adding partitions by multiplying a loop space and an ordinary roof shape. The 3 elements, the exterior wall freely embedded openings, the interior wall involving all M&E system and the roof, were twisted. This composition generates the spatial link of rooms widening toward the end, the various depth of eaves and the vertical expansion in height. This space diffracts the natural light from all directions, appears the mixture of light and shadow as well as the sound echo.

Spatial connection but visual contact, independent feeling but recognition, they symbolize the relationship of this family.
