House for Aya

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.
