Despite the exterior design emphasizes a distinctive historical character of the area, the interior reflects a very simple and minimal aesthetic. The kitchen, living room and Japanese tatami room are arranged on the first floor. More privacy has been given to the bedrooms, placed on the upper floor.

LDK has been organized around a double-height living space to allow natural light to trickle in. “Natural element played a key role in the spatial configuration” explained the studio, which is led by architect Daisuke Kishina.
