This single-storey building is a series wooden box that attached to a blue strip spine, looks like a bunch of grapes. Inside, this part of the house morphs to become a meandering corridor that as a space for relaxation, study, reading, or teatime.
Inspiration from architect:
A narrow space threads through the center of this house, expanding and shrinking, curving and meandering. This part of the house morphs and transforms to become a space for relaxation, study, reading, or teatime. We built a small room in the middle of this space. As the width of these branches changes, the purpose of this room, along with its relationship with the surrounding space, transforms along with it.
