This house was not designed to make the shade on the north house next door, as a result, the house with three floors shaped like ”L”. The interior was designed well-lighted and well-opened, in contrast to close outside like a silent sculptural volume. Whole the long distance of the site could be seen through from entrance court to bedroom at the ground floor level. Each room was filled with light and breeze from the two courts. The storage and bathroom were in the second floor, and in the third floor, another bedroom was placed. Found by the condition of the site, the simple form had been transformed into an affluent space for living.
A house design in Fukuoka that resembled a half-submerged submarine was completed by Japanese firm Kazunori Fujimoto Architect & Associates . In house in Ropponmatsu, there was an L-shaped profile, with the first and second storeys set back so as not to overshadow neighbouring properties. On the ground floor of the bunker-like house in favour of glazed walls that overlooked two enclosed courtyards, outward-facing windows were rejected. At the top of the three-storey turret, which resembled a conning tower, the only outwardly visible windows were placed. Photography was by Kazunori Fujimoto.
