Southern exterior ... The shape has a rectangular box shape with an edge side. The fence in front is what put firewood in the mesh for civil engineering work.


West exterior ... The roof of the right concrete release leaves a space to put a bicycle and firewood.

Landscape from LDK · · · The view towards the south spreads from the squatted horizontally long opening.

 Concrete walls are standing up to living.

Light comes down from the top light of the southwest corner of the building.

A light of light comes down from the top light. The line of light moves with the movement of the sun and gently changes the time. It is fun to think that the stairs are not only upstream and downward flow lines, but also equipment for daily enjoyment.

Wash basin · Undressing room and bathroom · · · The washbowl and the bathroom divide the space with the glass partition and the glass door. They feel mutually spreading. The washbowl was designed with stainless steel. There is no seams, it is easy to clean.

Facade night view


The property is located at the top of a hill with a small height and a location with a nice view in the south. There was a request from the client to make use of it.
There are some squashed openings in a square outline. Designed so that light, wind and scenery can be symbolically brought in from the opening to the inside.
I design void to enjoy the light in the room.
Since the opening on the viewing side faces the road, we had to set up a fence. When seeing a view, you can see it as part of the view. I examined something in the texture of the fence, a thing that feels soft. As a result, firewood is put in the mesh for civil engineering work. and it is used as a fence.
