Outline

The information age is an era when new communities are being born. It is an era of intellectual relationships; there will definitely not be a society in which people have no relationships. Friends who bond in intellectual relationships connect like family, and family members become friends. Family bonds shift to "everyone’s rules" and become looser and more comfortable. The entrance of the house opens inward and the dining/living room becomes a cafe where people gather. Nothing more is needed. Rooms for individual members become more equal, and for children, the whole house becomes a place to study. The second floor is more spacious than the first floor, and as the various family members’ relationships form freely, it is important that the design frame can be changed. House design for "everyone," both family and friends together, creates a home that hosts and produces new lifestyles.

Evaluation

The designers believe in the power of the place we call "home" and confront the issues of contemporary society directly. In specific terms, we see planning that reflects the lifestyle of the contemporary family amidst the simplicity that seems like a prototype for wooden housing.
