Building a new house would be great to get a warm feeling like an old house that blends personal preferences. T's like a circular house. Just like this circular house surrounded by trees, it meets the superficial needs of residents.
The owner of the house, Mr.Ben and his wife intended to build this house by giving the main question that I want a place that feels the same as an old house that is a commercial building with a long hall that can see the activities of everyone in the family. And another important thing is the big tree in the area of the house that I want to keep as part of this new house as well because it is a personal preference and has sentimental value.
The designers of Common Concept, therefore, came up with a design concept that meets the needs of the residents by using the environment context area such as a big tree, designing the space in the house to be surrounded by the trees. Therefore, the shape of the house is twisted with the area until a perspective is created that allows you to see the home of your parents and the place of relatives nearby as needed.

From the pantry area, kitchen, and living room to the work area and hobby area that can be seen in every part, the designer also uses a high door opening. Translucent as a glass to open a view to connect to the outside area. Like a big tree, Green space to enter the house area to feel refreshed and relaxed. The openness of the space on both sides also takes advantage of the soft light from the north that enters the house in the morning. And the evening light from the west at the entrance to the front of the house and the car park is a buffer, helping to protect the sun during a sunny afternoon.
Connecting the 2nd-floor area with a double space of the living room hall upstairs that is a private area, The main bedroom and bathroom are designed using the opening of a large window in front of the same space, allowing the two rooms to share a large tree in the middle of the house.
