From the architect. The project is constructed in typical Tokyo urban condition of closely built surrounding. The 4 story house resolves privacy and light with the design of 2 cascading courtyards which spills gradual light into the innermost volume of the house.

Due to the differing light intensity from the 2 courtyards, each space also differs in character and function.
