Architect’s Statement:
The concern about this project was that the 2/3 of the site is under consideration of the city road-building plan.

For this problem, the client family, who was running a funeral company at this place for long time, said:”We want to keep running our company at this place even if we have to give up 2/3 of the building. Even if we could have only reception desk space, we want to run our business here as we have been doing.”

Therefore we placed a dividing line on our design in advance to cut off the building, in case that the city road-building plan is implemented.
