The architect tried to do bring the cityscape of Gimhae that had captivated the client's mind, into the new house. Therefore, as a solution, he introduced a concept of observation tower in a form of family room. And also, inspired by the hobby of client; collecting ornamental rock and pot-planting, the architect created a foyer with a vertical gallery connected to the tower. The foyer presenting another distinguishing feature to the house, works as a communal space linking and integrating all the individual rooms. And the vertical gallery provides an exhibition space with a circulating route for ornamental rocks and pot-plantings. The client wanted to build a very small house compared to its site size. Therefore, it was difficult to use actively the vast outdoor space while the architect believed that a true architectural manifestation comes out of communication with the outside. At least, he wanted to give every each room a separated outdoor space.
