This house is designed by the purpose of long life and comfortable life. In spite of three-storied house, inhabitants are possible to walk on the gentle slope almost like a flat house. Wooden rooms are surrounded by the spiral slope and exterior walls which are made of Reinforced concrete. Durability of the RC structure which withstands horizontal force of earthquake allows flexibility of its wooden structure. In addition, the slope functions improving good environment. Closing light weight walls, the rooms keep not only comfortable temperature by making an air layer but also privacy.
