The owner lives a busy life as a doctor, and he requested for a quiet environment where he could get away from daily life for a moment and feel refreshed in nature.  His wife also wanted a relaxing house from a visual point of view as well, where a large living space is unified with green of the woods.

A deep eaves with 1.700mm depth was adopted to realize construction of this living space.  A comfortable middle area created with deep eaves is also a device to very naturally bring the surrounding greens to indoor.   The details on the edge of eaves create a light floating feel to the entire roof.

You can walk around the barrier-free rooms and enjoy a view from each room like a picture window that is framed with deep eaves and the deck.

The delicate details we continuously pursue provide dignity to buildings.

This is a building where harmony with the woods green was realized without the feeling of incongruity.
