The scenes of living expand to both inside and outside 

This is a house consisting of indoor and outdoor spaces. The clients are a married couple - their request: “We want a house in which we feel as if we are outdoors.”

While there is no clear boundary between the indoor and outdoor in terms of the construction of a house, it offers uninterrupted experiences and similar dimensions, structures, finishes, and furniture density.

Despite creating very different environments with the indoor and outdoor spaces there seems all the more reason to have fun with both indoor and outdoor dining.

The two areas really integrate with the ability to sleep on the comfortable bed outdoors for a short sleep allowing for the possibility to change your way of living. Sometimes you can feel that the indoor space is extended from the outside or is a space like outdoors. Sometimes you can feel that the outdoor space is extended from the indoor.
