Text description provided by the architects. Roji-house is built in the quiet residential area. As for the site shape, a frontage is small and spread outin the depths. The LDK space placed it on the wide part of the site, and I placed a corridor and rooms on the narrow part.

In the plan, it was an important point to make the corridor the comfortable space. Therefore I set the top light on the roof of the corridor and made a slab of the second floor by FRP grating. Thus, it became the bright space here. I named this space "Roji*" and placed it in the important place in the house.

The traditional public passage of the downtown area of Japan. A place of the community where the people of the neighborhood gather from children to old people.

I located patios and rooms in turn around "Roji". What I inserted a patio in between rooms is to make an area clear and can keep moderate independency for activity to be carried out there. On the other hand, the sign of the family is felt by being able to look around the activity of the family each other over "Roji" and patios.

The light from a top light on "Roji" changes consistently and gives rhythm in life. The light from a top light on "Roji" changes consistently and gives rhythm in life. This change is felt everywhere of the house and enjoys what find one's place to stay to like.
