This house is a kuri (monk's living quarters) in the old town of Osaka.
For their daughter with serious handicaps , and their local supporters,
the new salon was installed by connecting from the street to the main
hall of the temple . To protect their daughter from direct sunlight,
and to divide the inner rooms and outer graves , the first floor is closed
and light is taken from the big high side light. By using modern but
traditional materials such as shikkui (Japanese stucco) , yakisugi
(burned cedar) , and kawara (Japanese tile) , this house is harmonized
with the city where old and new buildings coexist.
