house in Marugame

There is a deck facing southwest.


Entrance and storage


The dining wall is tiled.
The window of a slit of the top side light is provided at the top of it, and light is taken in. The window was set up at a location where the neighbor is close and does not enter the sight.

The living room has large windows in the south and high windows in the north. It creates light and wind escape at both ends of the space.

The light of the slit falls from the high window. As time goes by, the line changes and I feel a time shift.

There is a hall way near the center of the house. You can reach each room through this space. This is a flow line to each room, it is also a closet.
The ceiling of the hall way is high and it is surrounded by the walls of Lauan. There is no window on the wall, light falls from the top light. The atmosphere is different from the other spaces in the hall way. Therefore, when you move to each room, you feel a change in the space. I think that the change creates a feeling of depth inside the house.

​Bed room

There is a long desk, you can use it side by side.
There are low lattice doors at the end of the desk.
Beyond that there is a place where pet dogs are located.

​Wash basin
