Floating site on the river

This site, where is floating on river and confronted the graceful landscape, was strongly recognized to me as a part of nature, from the first time that I met.

From then, I started to visualize “the architectural nature” as a place of recreation.

Form of site = Form of architecture = Maximum efficiency of landuse

While maximizing the efficiency of landuse, the leaner concrete mass, that cherishes the courtyard where is filled with the water and the greenery, was laid out on this site along the irregular formed site line.

This courtyard is “The architectural nature” and a central recreation space as extended river that communicate the river and architecture.

Continuous circulation of stepped roof garden – Creation of new green land in this site

The whole part of the step typed roofs, where is moving upward with various level, are directly linked to the bed rooms in upper floor.
Finally, this stepped roof gardens are linked to both sides of the inner court at where swimming pool is.

There was the intention to be a part of the surrounding context that consisted of the river and the mountain.

Architectural Island – Island House

As a result, this house was to be “The island house” as an “architectural island”.
