Four Facades
Of course, there are facade, right side and left side and rear side in this building. But, the side which has an entrance is called as facade for convenience sake and each side insists on the individualities with different appearance for the city. The left side is facade for the north side. The right side is facade for the south side. The rear side is facade for the east side.

Layers
Several layers were made by digging the lump of cube and empty out it. Such layers are used as the equipment including useful external space, such as balcony, terrace, etc. in the intervals and the equipment of visual pleasure through the sense of depth.

Context
Generally, when starting the design, people find the clue of design by observing the situation around the land. When the clue is positive, it is reflected to the design. But, when it’s negative, it’s blocked and neglected.

In this project, the land of building is located in the area of city which is changed rapidly, so the surroundings are very disorder. It was confused that buildings of various uses are existed by various forms, materials, colors and arrangements.

So, the strategy of blocking and neglect is selected.
Decently! Toughly! Orderly! I hope that the surface of this building can be a strong peel blocking the surrounding situation. I hope that it can be neat princeliness in disorder.

Balconies of three Types
In this building, the balconies of three types were designed.
a. The balcony for loneliness:
When tired by work, it’s the balcony to see the city with cigarette alone.
b. The balcony for two or three people:
The balcony which is good for the chat of two or three people .
c. The balcony for party
The balcony which is good for noisy… external cocktail party, sometimes, barbecue party.
