Text description provided by the architects. This is a residence consisting of an inside house and outside house. It is also a proposal of architecture of a new relationship between internal and external. Because the site is an irregular shape, the planar shapes of the rooms in the two cubes of “inside house” and “outside house” are irregular shapes. In the two cubes, there are glass windows and wooden-board windows in the peripheries, and any room lets in light and wind from the windows and the inside house intermingles with outside house through windows.

When the wooden board door at the entrance is opened, it is planned so that the view can run through from the north garden to the south garden and other wooden board windows are also planned so that the view can run through unexpectedly.

The “inside house” includes rooms where a family of four people can live in comfort, places equipped with water supply and electric appliances, etc. It consists of entrance, living room, dining room, TV, air conditioner, kitchen, bedrooms, children’s room and bathroom, etc. The “outside house” allows for things that you want to do outside house. For example, keywords such as woodwork, work, growing plants, keeping insects, maintenance of bicycles, hammock, sunbathing, gardening, playing with water, seeing the sky, tools for mountain climbing, napping and reading books, etc. are assumed.

The opening sections can be opened with different heights and sizes between the inside house and outside house and they were planned so that you can feel more distant than the actual distance and various places can be generated in the small site.

Takeshi Hosaka thought that many life acts would be richly generated even in a small site in Tokyo by building “inside house” together with “outside house” where you can treat those things such as nature, rain water, soil, sand, animals, insects and birds that were eliminated by the modern architectures and cities, and acts which are originally supposed to be outside the house.
