The plot is in a residential area with verdant surroundings. The owners are an office worker and his homemaker wife. This project began with the plot next to the location where the wifes parents live.

The plot is oblong and sandwiched between large and small streets. Capitalizing this distinctive shape of the plot, the 3 stories high box exterior is faced with openings in grid patterns to internalize the light.

The blue sky and the verdant green jump into the box through openings. From the top lights, the random shimmer rhythmically reflects back and forth.Embracing the masters relished Lancia Delta, LANCIA is a compact refined house without showiness.
