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.
