The living area is an open and dynamic space with decorative beams, whereas the natural reed cladding on the dining area and kitchen ceilings creates a calming effect.

The L-shaped garden gives the family a great deal of freedom. The gate, approach, entrance lobby and tatami-floored living room provide plenty of space for entertaining guests.

A place where love for the family, respect for friends and acquaintances, and gratitude are not forgotten.

This is a home which embodies all the coupleʼs ideas.
