Light pours in from the many windows in this colorless space.The shadows change throughout the day, creating a sense of depth. The delicate vessels placed on the shelves look great in the space.


On the day of the shooting, the sky was cloudy.It started to rain during the shoot.The sound of rain could be heard in the quiet room.I could see the rain dripping on the windows facing the courtyard.The plants are alive and well.A rainy day is not so bad.


On the first floor, the atelier, living room, dining room, kitchen, and Japanese-style room are gently connected in a U-shape surrounding the courtyard, and I am conscious of the gradual continuity of space that can be felt from the images.


The atrium space in the living room has a window that leads up to the bedroom on the second floor when you look up, making the space feel open and airy, as if it were an interior space but an exterior space.


A spiral staircase in the center of the room leads to the bedroom, a spacious washroom next to the bedroom, and a glass bathroom that lets in the light from outside. I suddenly remembered that this was a corner of a housing complex.
