A renovation project of a wooden house. The structure of the existing building was retained as much as possible, and louvers were added to the interior and exterior.

This project realized both the inheritance of the existing house and the creation of a new space. The louvers provide light, wind, and visibility, but also avoid the view from the neighboring houses.

In addition, the use of natural materials such as wood, cork, and plaster created a warm living space.
