The lot is located in an old residential quarter at the foot of mountains named “Ohmi-fuji”.The house is between a park and a river. Therefore, I took advantage of the great view. In particular, all windows are located in north and south which is good view. I made much account of a space with foliage.

I arranged the living room and the kitchen, which are main spaces in a house, in the good view upstairs. There is a large opening window in the spaces so we can let in light and wind. And there is a tunnel-shaped balcony in upstairs, and I could make a buffer zone which is integrated with the living room, the dining room and the kitchen. I tried to generate diversity in life.

I set up openings in all ends of lines of flow for housework. There are walls or plantations which can become eye-stop in the spaces. I tried to make the light shading, the expanse and the abundance of spaces. I believe that the clients can enjoy the change in four seasons and time from their own room because I took nature well.
