There are many things in the world, all with their own significance.
Things which have meaning for some people have none for others, and things which have significance at certain times may have none at others. We are seeking the meaning that is brought out when things are judged in terms of themselves, and not in terms of human desire. This meaning is manifested through architecture, interior design, and landscaping; the creation of streets that make you want to stroll through the beautiful scenes they offer, and interiors that seem femiliar and yet provide a sense of excitement. We offer contemporary living, taking into account the relations between things, meaning and people, placing importance on things which we can see and touch, without being bound by, yet remaining faithful to, our philosophy.
From Hankyu Minoo line Minoo station where a site is also a stoop to a waterfall in Minoo, about five minutes on foot. But it's located in the inclination of the mountain, the quiet residential area irrelevant to its convenience spreads around here, and when I go up a slope a little, there is a god of the harvest who was circled and endured the quiet in a thick forest. That was a concept in this house to follow an excellent maple tree of the 10m which was in a site originally and this tree producing all impressions in a site obediently, and I aimed at a clear plan for it. The outward appearance of the building consists of a white box which consists of the private room district where the first floors are bedrooms and the shape that the volume of the corduroy steel rust color which consists of LDK on it takes it. When the upper and lower box slipped each other, and was arranged, approach runs through a gap made of that, and even a foot of a light maple tree comes out straight for the tunnel-like dim sight. There is an entrance in the middle of the approach, and a visitor enters the interior more than the bosom where a building is invert elevation. The blowing through up which the step level went meets and invites a heart as well as light to the top to the top in front of the entrance. A serving of landscape is full of sight by the scale which is to the extent north comes off to the outside and can't think of a leaf and a powerful trunk of the refreshing maple which developed from the first floor as the second floor, all at once at the same time as I go up a void on the second floor. Its Kaede can inflate more including reception and landscape in marble on a floor. It's possible to continue between the ceiling and the floor and the residential space on the second floor where I have no interrupted one which are partitions in horizontal direction without the bowels and the thing delayed to outside again from outside and feel the maple almost overflowing everywhere. It's the state of whether it's prescribed that that place is the interior only to say that it's under the free roof when removing glass. An open bedroom equals the first floor only to a garden where I nestle close to the south side of the building to the open second floor. A box in the clear bathroom protrudes in a garden, and I take on the aspect of an outdoor hotspring bath. I'm planning for a balance as the whole by the thing which makes the nature different from two hierarchies piled last. Naturalness and something to rise and say abundant space are brought up, and doesn't anything really important go by a case that you aren't confronted with something there already and nestle close obediently, not to insist by the "shape" of the construction?
