Here’s some text from FORM/Kouichi Kimura Architects:
House of depth
This house is built on the lot 10 meters wide and 23 meters deep.
Despite its urban, closed appearance, the house has between the exterior and the interior a long approach that can be regarded as the intermediate zone relating to the surrounding environment.
Several areas where the line of sight is uninterrupted are provided inside the building, aiming to enhance visual depth.
