From the architect. Ikimono Architects' clients, with three small boys, pursued a protected house with privacy in a large vacant lot downtown. Ikimono Architects suggested a one-story house with inner courtyards. The end result is a house with a variety of 17 rooms (11:outside,6:inside).

Here, the personal occupation place such as a bedroom and the nursery is not clear, the whole house is felt with one's appearance. Because there are some outside rooms, when light and a shadow change to solar movement every moment, the relationship between individuals changes again, too.
