This plan is one answer to all "generalizations". I propose housing that suits the site environment, climate, natural features, and the senses of the residents. In Japan, there is a large supply of off-the-shelf homes (houses built with generalized equipment and specifications), and these homes are not get closer to the individual senses of each resident. In this plan, we will first focus on the minimum necessary "living". From there, I aimed to grow together with the residents while experiencing the time and seasons, and to become the best building for each of the residents' five senses.
