Description on this project

It’s wood architecture in the city. The pillars of the glulam and the flat slab cover the vertical power. Also, the wood brace which covers the outer circumference burdens the horizontal load and wraps the living space softly. A common staircase of a single straw carving and a carved stone characterize this apartment house, the stairs are a place to see the city and feel the seasonal change.
