This residence is a two storied residence built in wood, located in a residence area about an hour's drive from Tokyo. To achieve a clear contrast, white has been added to the basic color of the mortar of the exterior walls.

As for the interior, when you open the front door, you will see an earth floored room  like that of an old Japanese house,  extending all the way to the yard beyond and you will see a tatami mat living room running along the earth-floored room (area). 

By combining tatami and tiles, Japanese style and western style  are harmonized.
