The client himself, also runs a business, he has a exclusively great taste for design, because of his work especially, therefore as discussions were held at many times, the images of a vintage element in America West Coast, or a sophisticated atmosphere which has a nature essence, simple, plain and efficient Bauhaus in Germany were risen.


With this background, the plan of a two-family houses with a compact garage for 8 residents for 2 family started.


This plan is created by pursing what the primary sense of value is, and with the design of the jungle-gym-like frame, the relationships among the family members, and the exterior environments are flexibly weaved into the concept. This frame looks 8 figure horizontally, this is intentionally set, because 8 is a lucky number in Japan, and wishing that the client would have a better opportunities, live long in good shape with his family.
