From the architect. My concept is to make Japan a more beautiful to live in.
We built a beautiful Japanese house with the best quality material adaptation to local climate worldwide. Some of this techniques were for example the use of local plants and vegetation in the garden to grow in harmony.

Taking advantage of the spacious site, I placed 5 gardens, each one with a different atmosphere (which are all designed to ensure privacy); a traditional Japanese front yard (Maeniwa) extending to the entrance and the living room overlooking Shuniwa.

In order to maximize space, the sliding doors that separate the kitchen/dining from the living, can be completely drawn.
Paper sliding doors filtering light for better rest, with view of the garden , when opened.
The windows in the hallway are small intentionally in order to reduce light and a Japanese-style room, is overlooks the garden.
