• private residence

This is the studio and residence of a designer/illustrator couple. The various spaces for creation and living are enveloped by thin curved wall. The structure is composed of 9mm thickness steel plate. To minimize the construction operated at the small and narrow urban site, the building was manufactured and assembled once at the steel factory and then transported in 8 blocks to the site.
