SIRI is a renovation project of commercial
building. It is both a house and an office of
jewelry business which belongs to the family’s
third sister. The house is not only for the big
family with 4 brothers-sisters, but also for the
future extension of family members, so large
utility space is necessary. The site is two identical
commercial buildings with narrowing inside. The
design is to utilize the space in which every unit
for each family member would be a compact
private house comprising of rest area, pantry,
bedrooms as well as living room with open well.
Each unit is double-leveled with separated access.
The elevator is at the back which is separately
accessible to each unit. The top level is the main
living room and dining room for the family. Central
core and the back of the house are opened to
allow daylight approaching to all levels. Also, a big
tree in the house provides feeling of nature. The
family members can see movement of each other
all day through the central core. The exterior was
designed reflectively to the area of units inside, as
well as the connection of units to each other and
to the top level.
