From the architect. The housing is located in the place from one block from the main street in Osaka’s suburb, and I cannot say it’s calm. There are a lot of different buildings such as an iron factory, an elementary school, and a parking space near the housing.

In this planning, I call the garage in the building site “Light Well” and I deploy the building in L type around the garage. There is only a road in the north side and I intentionally didn’t make a window in this side and planned that all rooms can take lights and air from this “Light Well”. I put Gal-Barium Steel Plate on the road side of the housing and it configures the feature of this housing with wooden doors.
