House in Hiroshima
Discover the joys of watching the progression of the seasons,
the shifting of the light over the course of the day,
the growth of vegetation.
Public to private, inside to outside, room to room —
rather than abruptly switching from one to the next,
or considering one adjacent to the other,
seeking ways of connecting one to the other gently, gradually,
valuing spaces that exist in between things, sequences.
Constructed of wood and earth,
the interior is gentle on body and soul alike,
a space conducive to a calm presence of mind.
A house built with the thought of providing a dwelling space
in which an aging couple might spend their final years in peace.
