Toyosaki is a town located in a 15 minute walking distance from Umeda station, a main hub of transportation in North Osaka. It is also a 10 minute walking distance to the nearest subway station and is therefore, very convenient. In the area, there is a main street but also back streets where these older connected town houses exists. The owner bought an old house and want to renovate it. The structure and insulation was enhanced to meet the latest requirements.

The space was designed with an open space layout with exposed ceiling beams and the space are softly divided by curtains. The entrance has a luxury space considering the total size of the house. In opening up and connecting the space, the old doors and flooring, kept when the house was demolished, were reused by changing the functions and locations of them.
