The central staircase with the roof light sends sunlight to each spaces through the studs and stairs rising to the top floor without a landing to the middle floor. The partitions of translucent glass and plywood give the adequate relationship and privacy in the two completely different rhythm and pattern of life.

If the house’s magnetism is not greatest at completion but greater gradually for the lifespan, creator’s role of the house should be inherited from architects to residents to accustom itself to their lifestyle.
