A single storied house clad in metal sheets in a minimal form, kept low to respect the scenery around the site. With steel framing as the main structure, the module of traditional Japanese wooden house is employed in the standardization of dimensions composing the house. The wooden sliding doors enhance the depth and continuity of the interior space. The garden is designed with water scenery and gently undulating ground surfaces, in order to provide unique views for each room facing to the south. The house equally values the building and its exterior space, aiming to reflect abundant changes by the seasons.
