On the first floor, there is a salon and a dressing/sleeping room in the back for the mother. When windows are open, wind goes through the large space under the eaves facing the town.

Lively activities arising here will add energy to the town. On the second floor, there is a writing/sleeping room for the father where he can enjoy the landscape of the next garden,  and a dining kitchen also serving as a buffer of the couple’s lives.

This architecture has a simple plan reflecting the couple’s lifestyles,  and wood over time gives the taste and warmth to architecture in various ways.
