This house was built as a home and atelier for the painter Gen’ichiro Inokuma.
Inokuma and his wife live on the second and third floor, while the first floor is a residence for his younger brother and wife. The symbol of this house is an olive tree that the client planted on the site when he was young, which is now more than forty-years-old with thickly overgrown branches. The living space on the second floor is a projecting irregular shape surrounding the olive tree, and the upper part is a roof terrace. The bathroom and island kitchen have been used to skillfully articulate the capacious single space into the three: the living room, the dining room, and the bedroom. Large fixed windows have been installed to the south of the living room and dining room, which frame scenes of the olive tree,and at the same time produce a setting for life that protects the olive tree.
