The client is a real estate company agent and his wife as a architects officer in their 30s.
The two learned architecture in the university and have very deep knowledge of architecture. They obtained the plot as a member of our plot analysis club and this project started with their wish to relax in a compact residence in the urban city. With the favorably close proximity to the terminal station, the surroundings are crowded with 3 stories houses and higher apartments.
Because of the height limit of the front street, initially we assumed to let the light through the open void from top lights. A guest room, capacious storages and a body room are arranged in the first floor and instead, on the third floor holds a sequential bedroom accessed from a spiral staircase.
For the fireproof, the volume adopts a steel structure securing light and wind from the distance made from height distance. Looking up at the spaceless sky, the inner space produces flexible atmosphere. CIELO embeds the slight void as if it were present previously.
