This house consists of two rectangular parallelepiped volumes in white and black. The white volume is two floors above ground, and the black volume is semi-underground + two floors above ground. Since the height of each floor is different, each floor has a skip floor, and the floor structure is ambiguous to give continuity to the space. From the semi-underground space to the rooftop, a complex space is developed even though it is a simple plane.
