On the south side, this house faces a nursery school garden. The scenery on this side may be open but it could be seen from the nursery school. The floor height of the living room is raised due to this condition. In this room, the family can spend a lot of time on a daily basis and also arrange each room in a skip-floor manner below and above the living room where its floor is raised.

There is also a large window on the south side. This window has a high opening so the sight’s line is directed well toward the sky. The wooden floor on the entire space of the house can create a warmer atmosphere while the white wall can create a natural and simple look with the floor.
