3人家族のための都心の家。
都心且つ他の住居との距離が近いことから、プライバシーに配慮したデザインとした。
寝室やバスルームなど、特に配慮の必要な空間は住居の1階と2階に配置した。また、リビングルームやキッチンは3階に、スタディルームはリビングルームの真上であるロフトに位置するように設計された。これらのエリアは全て3階と4階にまたがっており、天高の大きな開口から自然光が入りながらも、手すりにルーバーを施し、曇りガラスの窓と透明なガラスを上手にレイアウトすることで近くに位置する住居群からプライバシーを守っている。

The theme for this house design is ideal for a small family. The idea behind this design is to accommodate privacy, while living comfortably in the dense downtown area of central Tokyo. The rooms that need maximum privacy, such the bedrooms and bathroom, are located on the first and second floor. Living room and Kitchen are located on the third floor, with the study area located just above, in the loft. These rooms are situated as is to utilize the maximum potential of sunlight needed for each specific room. The third floor has very high ceilings which allows for a lot of natural sun light from the windows on the south side of the structure. As the pictures show, the design of the handrail on the deck, along with the translucent windows, allows for maximum privacy from the outside world. The rough steel frame allows ample amounts space, while keeping the budget to a minimum. The inside handrail, light fixtures, bookshelf and other furnishings create a unique harmony and theme to the interior design. In conclusion, the design allows a comfortable, private and modern living space in the heart of the Tokyo.
