Micro / macro manipulation from Alphaville 

To avoid an existing house and to create a courtyard, the linear volume was bent twice. As a result the central volume having the north-south direction, regardless of dense surroundings, interior was abundantly provided with the natural light from the cracks that are created between roofs of different height and direction of slant.

Three openings, the fixed furniture and the kitchen booth are engraved into the twisted walls as an interface between different areas at the height of 2,000mm and are coloured in white. As a result of the overlapping of these macro and micro manipulations, the twisted volume with white folds here and there are filled with graduation of light, which give you the feeling as if you were somewhere in the urban city, beyond the arbitrariness of an architect.
