What we planned was to create the architecture as the void rather than the mass. Specifically, tunnel-like void spaces were created with three walls and slabs being supported by such walls. The height and width of slabs are arranged in such a way that creates different types of spaces, and the narrow slabs, one that faces on the street and the other at the back of the premises, are used as hanging gardens. These hanging gardens are not only the pleasure to have greens that are easily accessible from inside the house, but also effective for appropriately obscuring the view from the street. In addition, some of the greens from the parents’ house across the street were planted in the hanging gardens of this new house, being taken over by the new generation.
