The building is adjacent to the owner's residence. “Enjoying the stored paintings in daily life” is the heart of the concept from the beginning. The building is planned taking advantage of the characteristics of the L-shaped deformation area facing the intersection. The exterior of the museum has no windows and only a few horizontal slits. Some glass blocks are provided on the indoor floor, reflected light from the floor is put in the room. You can enjoy the exhibition while moving the space to the 1st floor, the 2nd floor, and the 2nd floor in a spiral shape.
