Inspiration from architect:

In designing the house, I attached great importance to its relationship with the cherry blossoms.

The facade which consists of three white outer walls, is suggestive of triple ripples on the surface of the river. It is a house that enables its residents to live closely with the cherry trees which manifest all kinds of expressions with the changing of the seasons in Japan.
