From the architect. This private training center is located southwest coast of the Boso Peninsula. 2 capsule-hotel type buildings and 3 tatami-style buildings; the total of 5 cottages are positioned with various angles of axis.

The client requested guest units that had the possibility of future relocation and addition. While clearing these requirements and in order to ensure the necessary dimension for the bedroom spaces with economy, we utilized a wooden structural frame on a standard freight-truck of adequate dimensions.

All the rooms have a view of the Tokyo Bay, each one becoming a space like a ship's cabin.
