First of all, we returned to the innate house a human lived in, and we tried to reproduce the space in a modern way.

Dividing the space into small spaces-divided and we connect the space and space we have finely divided by stairwell and small aperture.

Not dividing spaces, but you are related to lightly each other, besides family can have their own places. Just as if, we make our own spaces at the cave.

Having own space, feeling others’ existence, looking out over each space, but you can’t seize overview. Despite a small area, you feel a wide space.

Feeling vaguely spread of space, feeling vaguely whiff of each other… This ambiguous “vague feeling” is the reason why this house makes you comfortable.
