Text description provided by the architects. The site is located in Oita, Japan. The planning area of the house is in a west and south orientation.  I examined the architecture and landscape of the south and north orientation, and worked with the relationships between interior and exterior. CAVE has three open spaces an the larger one with of 7 meters long. The large opening is by changing the height of the internal and external environment.

By doing so, we create a tunnel-like space as cavity, to obtain a space with a feeling of opening and sense of distance and a private place. The facade of this arhcitecture mantains the privacy from the outside, to function as a natural cave that incorporates light and wind into the interior.
