The owner is a graphic designer working for advertising firm in his thirties and a wife working for a public library. The master and wife have wide variety of interests such as bus-fishing, art, cars and piano. As a start of living together after marriage, they purchased an 80sqm site in tranquil Nerima residential district. 3 stories high RC residential project was selected to meet their request of wanting to create Corbusian concrete nesting box

The 1st floor is for their hobbies, a car room for the master‘s Ferrari, a book storage, piano room and etc. The outer space holds the fishing boat and the second car room.

Southern part of building has a large opening in the second floor with a large blow-by securing 4.5m ceiling height. The third floor lies their tatami bedroom (woven straw mats) with a garden deck.

From the 1st floor to the 3rd floor is a sequential space with a perforating concrete cantilever stairs without any fixtures. Consciously made blank space for their favorite chairs and high wall on which encourages to decorate pictures turn to be a creative canvass. This residence has become a mirror of the owner‘s lifestyle and hobbies.
