The semi public courtyard is a place for exhibition and work. The site is a hilly area with narrow roads where small wooden houses cluster.

This is why a sense of distance, which is compact with actual feeling, exists.We thought that by providing a semi public courtyard for exhibition and work and huts for living, the place would become an environment where people can find place and ways to use according to the condition.
