A wooden private house built in 1986 with 2 stories was renovated to 2 apartment houses.  In each floors, we made existing small rooms to convert one big room, and added a new entrance door for 2nd floor. One floor became for one dwelling unit.

This was a 1980's typical ordinary style house for mass public family. In many cases, we are difficult to find attractiveness in it. But this house had 2 japanese traditional style room which was installed 'Shoji', half  transparent thin paper screen, on a sand wall in each floors.
