Outline

“3meter circle” is the definition of good communication distance for Japanese. When people gather within 3m in diameter, it drives natural conversation without feeling uncomfortable. Many houses are designed based on nature environment. However, never designed a house based on social needs. Hence, we would like to propose “4.5m circle” diameter space: expanded from 3m circle, but this enables you to adjust the distance between you and your family, and the community by sensing the unity. Those who live in the house can choose lifestyles how they want to connect together at different times.
