This is a two-family home with a ‘garden’. The Garden is on the second floor, that is, we sandwiched the garden in between the two-family residence space. The site area is too small to put a garden on the ground beside the building. So we located a garden between the podium made of RC and the wooden section floating over it. The ground floor is for the parents, and the wooden third floor is for their children and grandchildren. There is a dining kitchen on the same level as the garden, however it is like a part of the garden. So the floor is like a ‘doma ‘( a Japanese traditional earthen floor).

With the sifting of the each plans between the podium and the floating section, a big asymmetry balcony called a ‘garden’ appears around the 2nd floor. The half openness garden, surrounded by a plastic net like a pitching screen, is usually for baseball practice by grandchildren, sometimes for a lunch space as if we are under a big tree. And then flower pots are put on the peripheral area to catch the rain.

We intended that people would feel virtual volume of the garden, although in fact it is a void, with white wall, floor and ceiling. The garden is a spacious yard, which commands an extensive perspective of Osaka bay area.
