Neither the sea nor a mountain nor beautiful green can necessarily be seen from here. The impressive house that has the form of the white arrow was built to the site without an important context.

The form which is not recklessly opened outside to a large site, but is opened inside considered that we were suitable. For example, the inner terrace and the deep terrace under the eaves which penetrate the center of a building.

The roof is constituted by the stress skin panel structure which consists of assorted wood.

The whole building is wrapped according to the FRP waterproofing which is easy to carry out a maintenance and has the antirust effect.

The performance of the building built in a strong damage from salt water in the air.
