Description by Ido, Kenji Architectural Studio

It is a wooden three storey house that is built on urban narrow site. It aimed at a quiet, soft space with the wood and the wall of painting. The space with a brightness and openness was secured, and the space and the pitch with the density were applied. The beam of the void where the wind pressure had been received and the counter of kitchen were produced with the same material, elements were united, and “Meaning” of the beam and the counter was obscured.
