is a minimal home located in Kagoshima, Japan, designed by . Taking the view in consideration, within the low rise architectural volumes of the project, the master bedroom was kept on the ocean side to fulfill the given view, and rooms with other functions face inland. The large un-even space between these two volumes function as the main space, which become the path of the seasonal winds. The main living spaces function as a comfortable inner terrace. By installing mesh-like fixtures to the outer rims of the pent roof, a buffer zone was created to secure the safety of the interior from objects flying during the hurricanes as well as creating a comfortable opening for the panorama both opened and closed.
