This tranquil residential area is next to the owners parental home.

Musician owners in their 30s offered a residence which could be a living and working place as a studio.

In this project, a light court was inserted in the center in order not to link the relationship of living and working too close or too far

In contrast to the simple and modest black appearance, the effusive natural light plunge into the space spread back and forth.

For their work, being conscious about the treatment of visitors, this comfortable base position for creative activities and training secures family’s privacy apiece.
