From the architect. The project is situated on a very narrow plot, and bound by a small street and bamboo tree hill. Sitting into the hill, this single family house acts as both a retaining wall and dwelling place.

Out of respect for the trees that once stood there, cedar louvers and concrete embossed with wood grain suggest the textures and materials that sit in the forest behind the home.

When it gets dark, lights from interior illuminate its outside vertical latticework creating ambiguities around the context.

WC behind only one door from living space is forbidden in some countries by laws. I really don't understand the placing WC next to kitchen desk.

Can someone enlighten me on why some Japanese prefer their bedrooms at the "worst" location of the house?

i would say this project is both interesting and futile. as always: where are the occupants? how do they live in this cedar-clad retaining wall?

Why do you need windows if there are wooden boards stuck to them?
