Text description provided by the architects. The site of M6-House is at a residential area in Kumamoto city of one of the Japanese main city. Generally, the site area in Japanese cities is smaller than European and American. Therefore, the concept of this house is the sense of liberation with the securement of privacy by the harmony with interior space and balcony

First, living – dining where all families are, is designed an atrium and big two windows to get a lot of sum light, also the interior walls are based around the color white and it produces a lot of reflection light. In other words, the client’s family can feel the sense of the liberation.

Also, when madam is cooking, she can see and check children.
