The study of architecture is a journey. This thesis is a stage in that journey that allows me the opportunity to wonder, to explore, and to investigate. During the design of a house for my father, many issues concerning architecture are visited and these inquiries help me to search and develop my own position in architecture. The process of making this project is also a journey. It is a journey to see how an idea can be developed into a building by various means.

A building is composed of many elements. The elements play functional parts and represent the aspirations of the architects. In this thesis project, I seek to create desirable spaces by the manipulation of the elements. The inseparable relationship between the element and the space is essential not only for this project, but also in the study of architecture.
