養福寺の家 House of Yofukuji

The site is flanked by roads on the north and south sides, with the northern road being 1.8m lower than the southern national road. Taking advantage of this difference in site level, the bedrooms are placed between the garage with a ceiling height of 4.4m, and storage space is placed below the garage.

By installing a car lift in the garage, the car can be seen in front of the living room.

The open space on the south side and the closed space on the north side are arranged in contrast, and a water garden is placed as a buffer zone between the two spaces to allow stable light from the north side into the living room while ensuring ventilation.
