Inspiration from architect:

…had a good view of the sky over neighboring houses because the premise was a corner lot as well as a gentle slope toward south. The premise was also receiving sunlight all day. This is a fortunate condition rarely found in residential areas, and I thought that the broad view toward the sky and the sense of transition of the sun along the road of natural light will be a key to build a house here.
