Text description provided by the architects. This is a small house for a young couple in Obama, Fukui, Japan. There is a vacant lot around the site. So, by creating a large window on the second floor, it is possible to see paddy fields, mountains, sky and feel to spread over a floor area.

This plan has high ceilings and large living with cross sections of two small rooms. By the relationship between great rooms and small ones, we created many different places in this small house.

The house is wrapped with galvalume, the black masses standing quietly in vacant lot are familiar with the countryside.
