“House-hT” is a two-story house of steel construction , and the site of this house is in the new residential area of the Osaka southern part. The owner of this house is a young single man who is managing the food company , and is enjoying many hobbies which is racing kart , snowboarding , automobile maintenance , bicycle trip , etc .

He requested to make the space for enjoying these hobbies into the most important space of this house , and would be overlooked from the living space . Then , I arranged the living and dining room next to this hobby space in order to be overlooked for the living space at any time , and decided to make this hobby space to be looked from outside and to express the owner’s hobby .


And in order to connect the living space , the hobby space , and exterior space , I decided to cover these spaces as one big space using the steel frame truss and to divide these spaces with the big glass. I concentrated on designing this house to express the owner hobby , and designed other parts as simply as possible . I think that in designing this house the state of the house as a means of the owner’s self-expression was pursued completely.
