Text description provided by the architects.

This house is located in a new residential area in Niigata, Japan. Twelve rooms were made by dividing the walls and floor, which were then connected by a hole. The result is a single-room house that has many rooms at the same time.Wall and floor are 60 mm thickness made by wooden structure ( LVL Laminated Veneer Lumber ).

Thin wall and floor makes much more presence of rooms, than structure. So the scenery contain many different rooms in parallel. It looks like room’s patchwork. I aimed to make “high density scenery” in small architecture..
