The slatted, drainboard-like floors on the first through third floors are connected to the slatted tables, stairwell and skylights, allowing sunlight to reach right to the bottom of the house.

Three-dimensional gaps and holes in the visual field eliminate any sense of a two-dimensional spatial narrowness, or sensation of being fenced in.

    Fujiwarramuro Architects was able to complete a successful project with a small space that some designers would be hard pressed to utilize properly. The first concept of this small residence would have to have been how to bring natural light into the interior spaces at lower levels due to the close proximity of the adjacent homes. This was accomplished, as shown through the sections, by a light well, which becomes the central core for the home which all other spaces radiate off of. The juxtaposition of materials with the adjacent context sends this house soaring above its neighbors, and the view from the rooftop would delight anyone who visits. Simple, orthogonal, and maximization makes this project a success and would delight any occupant.
