This second house is for lady living in the city who would like to
spend the remainder of her life in the country.
The ceiling covering the whole rooms like canopy has a top light to
take the soft sunlight, which seems to show the living place nestling
in the nature. The large window and terrace under the overhung
ceiling give the wide view of rich scenery over her kitchen garden.
Concrete patterns of plants and flowers on the internal walls make
layers with real ones through the window in contrast to abstract
form of minimal architecture. Those design make the second house
image to place in between urban and rural, artificial and natural,
abstract and concrete.
