RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
It has been the problems of the deterioration of old buildings and the excessive number of open spaces on a small site in Tokyo lately. The majority of these properties have been destroyed during urban renewal. In this project, the design was endeavoring to explore the capability of a small fascinating residence on a small site in the center of Tokyo. At the same time, this building was designed not only attempting to endeavor the capability of a small residence in a city, also putting effort into re-creating the landscape of Edo Tokyo Kiba which was disappeared.

From the point of view of the structural design, it was difficult to realize the construction of a seven-story reinforced concrete building with four columns on a small site and fragile ground. In terms of details of the wooden louvers, which has about three meters lengths located in twenty-three meters high (max), there are supported simply by fixing only the upper and lower ends taking into account a wind pressure and a load bearing capacity, in order to re-create the old landscape such as the image of lumber standing in front of a lumber wholesaler's store.
