Text description provided by the architects. A house built in the downtown of Tokyo. A couple and a child live. When I looked at the neighborhood, the window with low fence and the balcony were in every house, it was also a place and tool for communication with the town.

So I set up windows on the 4 sides, and put large and small balconies on the indoor side of the window to make it a place of life. There is a balcony in the window outside and inside the house.Living in a moderate sense of distance between the balconies.

The balcony at the window side has a feeling like outside though it is inside the house. The feeling of the window side spreads throughout the house.
