Ginan House by Keitaro Muto Architects

Standing at a long and narrow site in Ginan-cho, this house is a two-storey residence consist of two gravel volume, a mini swimming pool is tucked into the gap between two walls near the entrance door.

Spread gravel all over the site and placed some big garden rocks and trees, the building looks like a part of a garden. The inside spaces left by the volumes are open spaces where the family can get together.
