This is a plan for a weekend residence in a certain place in Western Japan easily accessible from within Osaka city. The owner purchased a long and narrow sloping land with 13m of difference in elevation on a small hilltop overlooking the sea in the distance and wished to spend time playing various activities and relaxing at this place which are not possible in the city.
In this lot of sloping land we have proposed a plan with four floors and a voluminous stairwell of over 10m in order to connect them through the center of the building that directs light and wind into the structure and allows the presence of each floor to be felt temperately.
Each floor that is connected tgh this volume, which deviates from the scale of a living room, provides different view, light and wind environment.
One can enjoy a breakfast sitting on a swing, have a BBQ with friends in summer, read books covered in a blanket in autumn or take a nap with a fire going in a wood-burning stove in winter.
A time to spend at where you wish, selected from the places with a personality in each of them, depending on the season and your feeling at the time.
It is a playground for grownups to spend a luxurious time not possible in a city.
