Text description provided by the architects. I move from Kamakura Station to the residential area by a train. I pass through the small tunnel covered by trees. Then I appear in many places of green preserved in the mountain. I go down the station, and a flat way spreads out. A site looks like the valley along the slant when I go up the slope of the immediate slant.

When I came for the first time, I thought of a slope and green and the sea connected continually from the ground. I wanted to make a building which was connected to the remote sea while having these topography and scenery and relation.
