The house stands on a site facing a narrow, steep slope.
Round hollow on the deck floor accommodates a round bench, where people can sit and enjoy meals while watching over the wood view. The space may also serve as the external gallery.
The wood deck, tilted towards the sloped road in front of the house, created a place where the internal and external areas of the house meet and interacts.
