The project site is located in a rare area to keep the traditional and emotional townscape that has been designated as the Priority District of Nara town Historic Townscape. There was the old townhouse of the Edo era; the east side part of this site. However, in flow of generational change, the atmosphere of those days was lost; no exception in Nara town. We restored the townscape of the past days and considered it would be a symbol that connects Nara town to the future. Besides, we aimed that townscape would be brought up again by the sensitivity of the new residents who gathered here.
