My design image is that outer space inserts into the architecture, so that light and wind brought from the outer space will extend into the inner space.

Inner space and outer space would integrates.


The client who were born in this town want to have a big living room where they have fun with their friends and relatives.

Creating living room near the entrance hall which connects inner space with outer space by terrace is our solution.


Through three voids in the living room, various lights and shadows will go into the spaces.

You would feel the transition ofthe light and shadow.


Tatami room on the corner of the living room faces 'Tsubo-Niwa'(Japanese spot garden),and up from the level of the otherspace.

You would feel light and wind by being able to see the sky through the terrace(Box of the light)from the living room.


The light and air which changes every season would flow into the house.
