Outline

Two units in an old house partitioned into three units are renovated into a share house for university students. At the street corner, an open lounge with a vending machine, called "kiosk" is built in. The two-story entrance hall connects not only three private rooms but also all of the shared spaces and the "kiosk". This tall space with wide windows also functions as the device for natural ventilation and lighting. Although located in an area where aging and depopulation progress, now we can see young people talking with the neighbors at the bench facing to the street.
