Text description provided by the architects. An housing complex in a residential area of Nagoya city. Since the site was rather narrow toward the south, Referring to the historical town house in Kyoto, we wanted to make a three-dimensional courtyard house.

Each unit has a courtyard, which brings light inside and extends the limited interior space to the outside.

Instead of extending the floor area to the maximum of the site, we made space between the outer wall and the property line, and put the entrance of each unit on the periphery of the building. This outside space works as a shared front garden and a corridor to access each entrance door. This circled outside corridor relatesthe habitants somehowand connects the building and the surroundings gently.
