'Wave House' is a single-detached dwelling embracing the natural landscape drawn from the surrounding environment. The project focused on the elements that comprise the everyday experience of the users. In particular, the living area and bar were designed as fused spaces to facilitate a solitary and communal space for entertainment, and the bathroom in a guest room on the basement floor is enhanced by the presence of skylights placed along the sun’s trajectory to capture its natural light. The curved facade of the architecture was incorporated into the interior. The main objective of the project is to offer the living experience inherent to a single-detached dwelling. The house presents general yet unique, and visceral interaction with nature. The uninterrupted mutual fusion of the landscape inside the house is especially emphasized, and the outdoor layout involves unacquainted elements amidst urban complex housings such as the front yard and pond. The project concept focuses on the space in the landscape. The type of element and its arrangement based on the view point and behavior of the resident rather than the internal style, and the storage compartment is seamlessly designed.
