NOTE:

Dark concrete walls and a black archetypical house volume above it, a translucent lean-to roof, a white high flat roof and a silver box under it. Those totally different and inconsistent materials and colors are combined to form this house.
The site is in a residential area developed around 1930, sloping to the west on a hillside of Mt. Ikoma, which overlooks the urban area of Osaka Plain. We observed favorably the mosaic pattern of old and rebuilt houses telling each history of over eighty years.
