at the very beginning, client wanted to create a home without TV and living room – a home that family members won’t just sit on the big couch, watch TV or play TV game, with NO communication or interaction to each other. ( which,sadly, is pretty common in most of the families ) this space should be a place for everyone to share their day with each others.

thus all the rooms are facing toward the public open space ( living / dining room ). It seems work out perfectly in terms of leading all circulation into this space, but same time the dynamic movement make furniture setting a tough question to resolve.

Architects looked at it as similar relationship between urban plaza ( open space ) and surrounding buildings. This plaza should have enough flexibility to accommodate a varieties of events, public or private.
