Contrary to set backing from roads like general spec housing, build the house to face the road making the wall surface line to preserve the city landscape in Kyoto. Also ventilation, the view, and security, etc. can be shared with other houses, because of planning to secure the open space in the under side of the facade and this is connected with other open spaces in other houses.

The cost and the quality control have been rationalized by using the feature of Kyoto that the productive region is near the consuming region.
