From the architect. This house has nine parking lots. Eight of them are paid parking lots, located in a downtown area that required fire protection and privacy. In the first, we placed a dignified high wooden wall to ensure privacy.

This is an example of "urban housing" which skillfully incorporates a feeling of warmth. The concept is "Corridor". To separate it from a three-way road, and maintain height regulations, we designed a wooden fence.

The high fence makes the inside the outside and the outside the inside. This is the peculiar Japanese thinking for the house. The plan has at the core a kitchen and bathroom and many windows.

In the interior there is tile with floor heating. We also considered the balance of colors.
