Discipline: Architecture

This is a design that intimately suits the site environment, climate, natural features, and the sensibilities of its residents. In Japan, there is a large supply of off-the-shelf homes (houses built with generalized equipment and specifications), but these do not express the individual sensibilities of each resident. This plan first focuses on the minimum necessary "living". From there, the architect worked with the residents while experiencing the time and seasons, eventually creating a building that appealed to each of the residents' five senses.
