Text description provided by the architects. Located in Kamifurano, Hokkaido, this lot is occupied by Farm Tomita, a famous sightseeing spot. Without any landmark at the entrance to the farm, the large line of people, cars, and buses caused a certain amount of confusion. Thus, there was a need for a signal or gate at the main entrance. I began by researching a variety of thing like the state of the line and the existing facilities.

The results and the issue of visibility prompted me to create a volume using various sizes of house forms. Although they had a special application as a signal, by erecting the forms there, I attempted to create a new comfortable place that would serve as a trigger on the site.
