The whole consists of places equipped with a water supply, master bedrooms, and child's rooms (free room) including an inside court, an outside court, living, and a kitchen.

The plane of a siteful of a rectangle is divided into three. The simple composition which sandwiches each room on an "inside court" and an "outside court" is taken.  As a result, the room facing an inside court, an outside court, and the coat outside indoor is produced.

The inside court considered building the space of the space which feels light also for the limited inside as a place of inside with a well as a place of the outside where an outside court does not have a roof.
