An old wooden house was designed for renovation into two-family house. There was a small garden where the passengers could totally see it due to the low fence. The design objects making the additional building in the garden, rather making use of the void, offers the terrace as an outdoor room ‘Green Void’. Lots of light would pour into the terrace as well as the rooms by removing the balcony.


New beams are evenly added to the frame which would bring about the sense of order and express the transitional beauty reflecting light and shadows. Two beams are lighting equipment, and new narrow window provides the bright natural light. Beauty with order would come into being and the frame and light would be unified when they encounter.


The overhung stair of woods would create flow from the entrance to the rooms in the second floor via the main room. The desk and handrails of woods placed using the existing columns inspires conversations between the old and the new. New house totally renovated inside yet shows simple beauty of woods and light and the bounty of nature providing wooden spaces of several times.


The Green Void enfolded by the high wooden walls would be the vigorous space one would feel the light, air, and wind. The new design not only creates spaces like a forest where nature and the wood frames mingle but would positively interact with the city.
