This is a four-lot house for sale adjacent to a land readjustment site. The garden and living room were planned as one unit, creating a "SORA-IMA" where the boundary between the inside and outside is ambiguous and one feels close to nature. The living room is surrounded by the open space of the garden, and the garden is enclosed and arranged in a way that allows the residents to enjoy a new place to live. We proposed a new form of suburban residence that blends in with the city while maintaining a sense of privacy.
