house in Yachiyo

The enclosed walls protect privacy and the appearance of the windows not facing outwards can not know the interior.

All the rooms, along with the courtyard, are surrounded by walls.

It is a bright space surrounded by walls and privacy is protected.

In each garden surrounded by walls, different kinds of trees are planted.

Washroom ... There is also a dedicated garden here. No one can see inside from the outside of the wall.

Courtyard of children's room ... We have small windows established only one place.

The building consists of four enclosed spaces, including inside and outside, and the space created in that gap.
The enclosed space has walls in four laps, so you can not see the inside from the outside. Inside the enclosed space there are indoor space and external space of the garden respectively. It is a space where indoor and outdoor are integrated.
The space created in the gap is connected to the outside, and it is set as the neutral space in the house.
Close parts and opening parts are arranged according to the use, and each space with characteristics is completed. I designed a house where people who live can feel changes and enjoy daily living.
