New Residential / Special Residences (villa's, Terrace Houses, Mountain Homes, Mansions and similar structures)
This large-sized astronomical telescope does not permit even minute vibration.
The structure to support the telescope is “heavy” concrete.
We had to reinforce the ground to build all the houses with concrete.
It was not economical. So I want to design this house by the wood,except for a necessary part for this telescope.
I decided to mixed structure consists wood and concrete.
Next to this house there is a ‘warehouse of wind turbine generation’. I thought the conjunction of with this warehouse and this house.
