NOTE: 

Basically it is a one-room house. Though the plan is quite unique, being radially intonated, or bent, at several points. From the bent point are walls stretched towards the center of the architecture. Each spaces created between these walls have, thus, different depths and different extent of relation to other spaces. A wide range of diverse qualities of the spaces, such as composure, privacy and so on, are obtained. 

Tracing its history, creating architecture is none other than producing various distance. For instance, a private room is a situation where the distance is long or solid, to be separated. On the contrary, being distant yet connected generates the expanse of a space. What we suggest here is, a new but primitive, simple architecture, which embraces diverse feeling of distance within its intoned shape.
