A loft was provided at the top of the first floor to alleviate the sound problems on the upper floor. In order to match the volume of the surrounding residential area, and for daylighting in the central living room, the loft part was made transparent and the upper and lower floors were sectioned. It is connected with the town by the fold of the complicated volume made in this way.
