When I work on design, the ways of life are also rising simultaneously. What is important here is not the depth of the relationship, rather the part of “simultaneous”. I think it’s important to feel the synchronicity between design and the life at that moment. For that reason, in my design, I want to make the relationship between the parts and the whole as flexible as possible.
This house is considered as a changing vessel, sometimes change to the studio of art events. We first thought about a simple diagram adopting two axis from devision of the site. Schemes are useful as a trigger for organizing relationships, but sometimes spoils space if it’s overprinted. Therefore, the scheme once introduced, is disintegrated afterwards according to the micro circumstances and reapplied to the parts. The whole way of appearance also changes depending on the relationship of the parts redefined each time.
