The site looks down the calm Inland Sea of Japan and has a water conduit within. Its landscape consists of the ridgeline of the mountains and islands faced with the surface of the sea. For materials, the unit system of traditional tile-roofing (plain rectangular tile and hollow semicircular tile are used alternately) technique was applied to the louvers to stress plasticity. In the external wall the use of wood weight in the siding boards was partially omitted so that it could accent three-dimensional expression.
