House in Kikuna

The building stands on a triangular slope in a residential area with an existing retaining wall to the left. Considering the sloping line restrictions and the surrounding sight lines, the shape of the building is a simple rectangle. The boarded exterior walls are uneven according to the plan, with cedar used for the louvered shutter faces and hiba for the others. Depending on the location, some fixtures have closed and fixed wings, while others have open and movable wings.
