Text description provided by the architects.

Located in densely built-up areas, it is a two-family home.
One of the biggest challenges was how to secure a void space to obtain a good living environment in the areas.
Furthermore, where the void space was necessary was different among floors.
In order to meet the requirements, three boxes were piled up with the necessary void space secured at the right place.

As for interior, each of the three boxes has another small box.
By containing all the functions in the small boxes, comfortable void space was secured around the boxes.
Thus, a story of void and box in exterior holds true of interior.
Such a story running through interior and exterior made it possible to create a comfortable living environment in the densely built-up areas.
