This apartment building stands in a calm residential area. The site is located almost at the center of the block and surrounded by detached houses on all sides. In order to maintain the environment around the site, we placed the building in the center of the site and made the approach on the outside. By connecting small rooms like "Tsuduki-ma" in a square outer shape of 7.5 ken by 7.5 ken (1 ken = 1820 mm), we made the residents use various places depending on the scene of life even with a small living area. Also, by showing the wooden pillars throughout the building at 2730 mm intervals, the whole was made evident. By the intimate scale of the rooms and the repeated frame, we thought that it would be possible to realize coziness and spaciousness.
