The private wooden house designed by Archivi Architects & Associates, is built around two small courtyard gardens. The site is in the residential quarter that extends to the foot in the [Mt. Akibasan] park located in the east part of the Wakaura bay, Wakayama City. (Wakaura bay: It is one of the eminent scenic sites also in Japan.) In this park, it is assumed that it enjoyed that people in neighboring districts gather for a long time.
The shape of site is transformed into the gibbosity. A settled residence space locates it in this projecting part. It becomes possible for a big garden to appear at the center of a narrow site in doing so, and to supply to both residence spaces as a garden that can be opposite to green, light, and the style of nature.
In addition, it is promoted that nature is naturally taken into all the life scenes by two residence spaces’ tying in the corridor of the openhearted glass (Cross this courtyard).
The Japan cedar from Kumano and the Japanese cypress are used for the main structure material, the floor material, the siding, and the lattice material.
