This is a guesthouse located in an area with a lot of small houses. A small court of 1.8 meters square was arranged so as to penetrate horizontally toward the open space and vertically toward the sky. The vertical screen composed of aluminum unequal-angle steel of 4 meters length is laid out with the blade side facing inward and the end side facing outward. Looking directly above the court where the high and low trees are planted, a cut-out sky appears. Guests can enjoy various changes in the sky through the branches and leaves swaying in the wind.
