Text description provided by the architects. The concept of Architecture like Promenade, which accumulates spacial experience, well expressed in piled walls with sequential view of interior and exterior, which servers as an element to add sense of depth and the direction of entry. 

The controlled form of the entrance placed in the entry part is an objet for moving toward another space.  On going into the entry space, the house, surrounded by horizontal free-standing walls floating in the air, appears overlapped.  Free-standing walls of exposed concrete  to emphasize horizontal stream are used as a method to attract people's eyes and become visually magnified.

The light of nature falling long in dynamic angles through the cantilever decoration beam protruded from the flat surface of the wall, the light of nature falling is naturally ushered to the deck in front of the entrance with the property of concrete, and makes the place of main entrance recognized with free-standing walls.  Also, the glance extending long along the stream of free-standing wall stays a little far in the foot of the mountain passing over spindle tree fence.

Enter the inside, over the transparent window, we can see a tree in the back yard along the grass extending the floor all in one, which is the architectural element to induce boundless horizontal extension of the space visually.

 As soon as we go into the living room along the corridor, we can feel the energy of the extended light going down softly through the ceiling. The composition of walls repeating solid and void serves as an element of architectural promenaded which makes us feel the outside and inside  space sequentially with the natural light, and guides the direction of entry with tension.

Free-Standing Walls for Selective View

The inner garden seen from the livingroom expressing the changing seasons with free-standing walls for selective view keeps an indirect eye on the landscape of distant mountain hanged at the end of exposed concrete free-standing walls through toenmaru connected visually with the study.  Such architectural element becomes a device to draw nature selectively, and to makes a metaphoric communication between interior space and exterior space possible.

The domain created through a layer and a layer communicates  with nature along with various forms of walls controlling the visual and spatial movements.  Organic setting up of interior and exterior spaces connecting to corridor, back yard, living room, inner garden, study and toenmaru creates the architecture of incessant relationship and stream.
