Black House

Three small houses with high windows on a single sloping roof and an semi-outdoor entrance enclose the flat roofed living room. Dining room, kitchen, entrance hall and living room, each of them faces different directions with four types of views -bamboo forest, vegetable fields, fields and a small river.
The floor-to-ceiling large windows connect the exterior and interior, and the rustic nature of the countryside can also be felt indoors. The room is only accessible by skylight from the high windows, ensuring privacy while the soft light allows for solitude and rest.
This black house is a spatial medium for dialogue with nature, allowing guests to experience the nature of the countryside while staying indoors.
