Hangetsu emerges as an architectural homage to the primacy of the land, less than the building. Exposure and weightlessness were the key words while sketching what turned out to be Hangetsu, a half-circle structure residential building floating over the a mantle of lush vegetation. Its design blueprint was a contemplative response to the expanse of the surrounding landscape, where myriad peaks and valleys unveil to no-near end in sight. Thus, the building assumes a panoramic architectural persona, inviting its users to appreciate their role of spectators before the ever-changing nature .
