Text description provided by the architects. The site overlooks Shimabara Port and Mount Unzen, so we have provided an office where people can work while enjoying the view. By tilting the exterior wall, we planned to block the view from the street while securing the view.

The rhythm of the sloping exterior walls and random openings creates a façade design that is not monotonous but varied. The sloping exterior wall also changes expression over time.

The slanted outer wall plays the role of a niche inside, and by randomizing its size and position, a space with change was created.
