Text description provided by the architects. When we normally feel "interior" or "exterior", what are the causes?

And what are the causes of feeling "open" or "narrow"?

This is house designed with much thought to how, from those root causes, we define the conditions of a space. In a long, narrow space, we constructed walls, and by laying out a space in which we experience many rooms, we turn "narrowness" into "openness. "Further, taking rooms and gardens as equivalent, we created spaces that are like the exteriors, calling them "garden rooms".

By moving from room to another room, we can alternately experience interior and exterior, and they become the place where every rooms are connected to the exterior. Here we have succeeded in realizing a space, which pass traditional definitions to materialized a new relationship between - interior and exterior.
