Text description provided by the architects. The house is located in Mishima-shi, Shizuoka, on the slope overlooking Mount Fuji, and it is only 30% of 250 square meters of sites was flat. It was necessary to create more flat area that single family could live. In addition, the client disliked a high building, and it was necessary to design a building low.
