Text description provided by the architects. This is a dwelling designed on a site overlooking the Kanmon Strait in Shimonoseki City, Yamaguchi Prefecture.

A weather observation station originally stood on this location and one can enjoy a wonderful view as far away as Moji, Kyushu. The site is sloped and surrounded with greenery. Making use of this feature, we functionally designed the house by placing parking on its top.

From the living room, one can watch boats come and go through the Kanmon Strait throughout the day. We proposed a life of everyday enjoyment by fully integrating this luxurious view.
