Our aim is to create diverse and unique place in a pure architecture.Toward the context and history here, we provide a corridor with an inner void. The style allows diverse lives inside and we can enjoy the sequence with a lot of unique furniture and finishes as we move inside. It is like an ensemble play with several casts.The title “Elephant House” is from an oriental story
The Blind Men and the Elephant. When we touch an elephant in darkness, some regard it as a trunk of a tree, as a snake, as a fan, and so on. This story tells us a diversity of a fact and complexity of a human sense.
