It is a rebuilding project for a residential area lined with houses from ancient times. The project is in a 104.81㎡ (31 tsubo) low-rise area, and on a narrow piece of land with setback restrictions and limitations set forth under the Landscape Act. © Fuji-Shokai/ Masahiko Nishida For this reason, the surrounding houses are built to fill up the land, creating the cramped housing unique to Kyoto, and this makes it difficult to create areas with gardens and green spaces that give a sense of nature. Under such circumstances, we wondered whether we might be able to develop houses with a sense of space, while ensuring the number of rooms required. Therefore, on this occasion, we made a point of creating a space on a narrow plot. We set three boxes of different volumes on the plot and set each one at an angle. On the plot, we started creating the spaces produced by the angles. © Fuji-Shokai/ Masahiko Nishida © Fuji-Shokai/ Masahiko Nishida We
