He client who purchased the section along Sumida River in Tokyo works for an advertising firm and his wife is an agent of a financial company. They are a fancy couple in partial to Asakusa festival and fireworks of Sumida River.

From the plot search, the master whose hometown is in this district had been looking for a place to appreciate fireworks.

The couple has many chances to treat hospitality thus a large kitchen and a dining room were consciously necessary.

The exterior monotone vision consisting of fireproof side-louvers and concretes makes it unimaginable to perceive the interior.

Second story lays roof balcony off the dining room. The court house connecting the interior and the exterior provide a luxury living style in the commercial site.

Taking a nap with wobbles in a huge mural hammock illuminates oasis in the center city.
