This building is the House and Chiropractic space complex where is at the top of river terrace of Hirose river in Sendai, Miyagi. The architects pursued an architecture as a topography led by the balance of the neighboring environment which is like a part of ground made and eroded for a long time ago by Hirose river. The ground level of river terrace is led to a simple rectangular parallelepiped volume of 6m x 12m x 8m. This simple operation can make a deformation space inside. The emerging space made by this deformation becomes a family theater and study room and can be intermediate range connecting private area; housing and public area; chiropractic space naturally. By this deformation, "moving topography" emerge which is to be changing a space gradually to be recognized as depending on a place of human staying.
