This house is located in suburbs of Oita-city. The place is a small-scale residential quarter developed about 30 years ago.The housing lot exists together to the farmland, and atmosphere there calm compared with the city part.There is no special, wonderful view. However, the flow of light and the wind is correct and solid.We thought about a suitable house for this environment.
