b l a n k s t u d i o has used a double-wall façade on the second floor of the house, which helps protect it from exterior heat and ensures enough privacy for the residents. the different widths of voids on the façade are designed based on each interior function and the view of the surrounding context. inside, an open-air courtyard connects the indoors with the outdoors, and allows natural light and air to reach every space around it, creating a sense of calmness and liveliness. last, the skylight in the hall is designed to further allow natural light to enter into the transitional space all day. in consequence, the users can keep in with the sense of liveliness whether they are on the first floor or the second floor.
