This is a three-story residence on 83.60 m2 land, with three sides facing the roads. We designed into a planar and compact three-story house allowing car and bicycle parking space. The trees in the courtyard can be viewed from each room, so you can sense the turn of the season indoors. We placed a large window sash in the corridor to allow viewing the trees from the bathroom, not adjacent to the courtyard, in response to the clientfs request.
Split-level floor and open ceiling combination let you can enjoy altering open space, and expansion in vertical and horizontal directions. Plaster walls and solid oak wooden floor are used to match their furniture. The couplefs favorite color, gAdzukih (reddish brown), was chosen as the color for the exterior wall Galvalume steel plate. Looking the house from the street through the large window, you can catch a glimpse of the white exterior wall of the courtyard, giving depth to this compactly designed house.
