It is a space where visitors can listen to lectures and eat lunchies.

We thought about the role of a showcase that the vibrancy of people in the hall leaked to the outside.
By setting multiple roofs in one space, we can control the light and wind by changing the level.

In addition, we can create a small corner with planar "displacement".  We believe that buildings that can enjoy changes in external circumstances and changes in the inner appearance by a little volume manipulation are good.

We combine four different volumes into one space so that it will be the size that fits the scale of the residential area.
Volume that cannot stand alone support themselves, which is a feature of the appearance and interior.

The wall posts and cantilever beams of the L-shaped corner required for structure are connected by curves suitable for stress calculation to secure the opening , give the building softness.
