This is a project of two household’s residence in tranquil residential area in Yokohama city.

Husband and wife being dedicated to golf and gardening respectively, this project started with the owner’s wish to have central living room on the 1st floor looking through Japanese and western styled garden on south

A colonnade which intercommunicates the household of the son who is a surfer with his father‘s  facilitates natural interaction. The decorous appearance of concrete and camellia made louver succeeded in creating a noble atmosphere that harmonizes the natural green and the townscape.
