There are two mountains in front of a cross house. Each mountain is seen from each facing wing of the house with Japanese-style timberworks and French-colored walls. It is located at a village near a foot where water is running from Mt. Hiei. Our client is a French chef who creatively cooks by using local food. His Japanese wife loves making things. This house originates from his sensitivity and enthusiasm by a good mixture of France and Japan in nature. They are willing to paint woody portions, purchase lighting equipments, set deck boards, make a tank for holding rainwater and assemble a kitchen. The kitchen in an arched shape for the two mountains is available for a wide view inside and outside of the house due to a split-level space according to a slope.
