Wood is the material of the interior which is simple, humble, and down-to-earth. The interior design combined with color tones of light grey, dark grey, and blue-grey creates a modern, minimalist atmosphere that is tranquil, comfortable and one with nature. People, material objects, nature, and space is liberated and harmonious coexistent here. The house creates a broad sense of comfort so that the body, mind, and spirit can be set free to enjoy this paradise. Well beyond the needs of practicality and style, this residential design gives residents a deep sense of comfort and freedom. The home is where the family can really enjoy life and let go of the burdens and pressures of modern working life. Greenery surrounds this home, and thus the newly reconstructed floor-to-ceiling windows bring the views of nature and mountains into its rooms. Using the concept of "flow" and "box within the house", the entire house is treated as a large open space. Then elements of closets, storage space, and bathrooms are all integrated into one big box at the core.
