A modern bungalow is created form a continuous set of
pre-cut wooden pieces and pre-fabricated metal fittings;
all of which are exposed, as if part of a "puzzle".
The construction features hand-crafted wood assemblies
combined with earthquake-resistant metal assemblies;
simultaneously providing a comforting visual warmth and
a calming geometric rationality.
Materials and finishes are continuous from the exterior
areas through to the interior spaces. Distinctions of
"rough" and "finish", or "inside" and "outside", are thus
removed in favor of a greater overall harmony.
