Text description provided by the architects. This is a two-storey wooden residence located in Shiga Prefecture.

The L-shaped building is positioned to open out onto a garden on its southern flank, and a large pent roof covers the entire building.

Centering on the living room atrium, the interior features slits to provide passage for air and natural light, and openings in the walls in various locations. Air and natural light move around the space under the large roof as the day and the seasons change.

In careful consideration of the needs of a family with small children, the interior is finished with natural plastering materials, pure flooring materials, and natural paints.

It is our hope that, under the large pent roof, family members will be able to get a feel for each other irrespective of where they are, and that they can enjoy the changes in the natural environment each day.
