Text description provided by the architects. This project is a multiplex house that is composed of a basement floor plus 3 stories more. The children's room is on the first floor, while the parents is on the second floor and the grandmother has her space on the third floor. In the basement there is a training room for Kendo, which is a common hobby for the family.

The basic structural form of the house is a box frame type with reinforced concrete construction. The courtyard, which passes through the four stories, opens the space allowing light from the outside to filter through.

Due to the facade design, the mosaic of cut stone, a strong and weighty feature, appears weightless as if floating over the parking area. The stones also work to add texture and color to the RC walls.

Section

On the second floor, there is an open living room facing the courtyard and is near the bedroom. In the courtyard, there is a nice grassy area where the clients pet dog is free to play. On the third floor the grandmother's space is barrier-free with a bathroom that is easily assesible from the living and the bedroom. The spacious deck terrace offers nice views of the urban landscape.
