From the architects:

This project is renovation of a second-hand house that was made by the two by four method. We designed only second floor in which young couple wanted to live with daughter. Their original demand was living in large one-room without walls, but there was limit to remove walls because of structural restriction of the two by four method. 2×4 houses have been spread on account of speed and easiness of construction. However, it’s difficult to change plan in terms of house renovation……
