森脇の家 House of Moriwaki

The building is composed of two boxes: a bright box for privacy, light, and comfort. The other is a dark, closed box that serves a function. There are narrow and dark places to obtain the surrounding conditions and necessary uses.

These are clarified and carefully arranged and stacked. The resulting dark boxes create a rhythm of light and dark in the living line, giving space to the limited volume, while at the same time providing each room with its own independence.
