내외부 소통을 위한 중정
This house is located along old streetscape in “Minakuchi-juku”, which is one of Fifty-three stages of the Tokaido. Although, it was consolidated during the Edo Period. The community road and the space are narrow, so it’s impossible to make large space between the road and the house, and it’s difficult to build a house in the southeast in spite of the corner location in the northeast, which is good site location. So, I arranged inner garden in southeast. In doing so, I not only solved the problem point concerning the ground, but also made rich living climate. There is a symbolic deciduous tree in the inner garden which is visible from anywhere in, it plays a role as sunshade in leafy summer and as letting the sunshine in in non-leafy winter. The clients can enjoy the change of the seasons and time through the symbolic tree.
