The house for a couple and a young child was built in the place in the housing lot and the field in the Kyoto city that existed together. This house exists with “Sense of distance” as the theme. The first floor is LDK space including books and Japanese style space. The second floor is a compact plan there are a child room, a bedroom, study, a closet, and a terrace around void, and with the wandering.
The indoor window is installed in the upper part of void to look at an appearance each other in the window, and each room ties gradually. Each other can be considered as the family is in a different place by the indoor window, and a suitable sense of distance for the family with a good relations is invented. It cannot command a view of excellent scenery and privacy because apartment building approaches the outside on the east side and the house approaches the north side. Therefore, the first floor consolidates the opening in the direction of the southwest by the second floor for the southeastward.
Moreover, the opening in the direction of the southwest of the second floor makes to the bedroom and the view window of the child room through the buffer space of the terrace and the stairway, and takes the sense of distance with the outside.
