The site is located in a land with a good view. From the beginning, it was a strong request of the residents to take advantage of the view. A two-cylinder house consists of a tall cylinder and a short cylinder. Both are open in the direction you want the view. In the first cylinder, you can see the vertically long slit-shaped scenery beyond the space of the corridor that has two layers from the entrance. You will reach the second tube through this corridor. There is a cylindrical space that spreads vertically, horizontally, and diagonally, and the view spreads from the large opening in the south.
