This site is located in Sasebo City.Since grandmother of the owner had been lived in rent apartment that was exist in this land from long time ago, we decided to demolish it and divide the 240.49 square meters of sites and plan two houses for grandmother and the grandchild. As a result we try to design two houses that will still looked like one house from outside.We design the single-story grandmother house in lower west side of the slope,and the two-story house of grandson in high slope on eastside. By doing so these two house wont look like a two separated building and will look like one single building when seen from the hill.Furthermore, to be able to let the light and wind flow from the southeast, we install slit windows on the east side of grandmother house that emphasize its height.
