The planned site for this house is in an old residential area. I wanted to change the uniform cityscape while harmonizing with the cityscape. For the outer wall material, the wood is lightly colored in gray to give it a color that seems to have changed over time. The floor plan considered a house that feels nature even in a densely populated area. We have a courtyard on the 1st floor and a roof terrace on the 2nd floor. The garden creates a private space. People who live in this house feel nature even when they are indoors. I thought that feeling nature in everyday life was an open house.
