The owners are the mother, the daughter and 3 sons as famed construction company agents. The plot is located favorably near to the Tokyo University along the national highway in a preeminently tranquil area.

In this project we were committed to designing inventive space which fully functions for individuals to the whole family based on the concept of “apartment building for adults” . The next to the entrance is a built-in garage which embraces the sons cherished Porsche Carrera and BMW for full maintenance.

Individual rooms for each member and the living room for the bosom of the family have moderate distance.

Taking the busy street on the frontage into consideration, the façade forms introvert to secure privacy while the inner space holds a court in the core surrounded by picture windows. CARRERA can be seen as a generator of public/private and individual/whole relativities. The lifestyle with such luxury adult house is about to begin.
