The inwardly bent original structure provides a public space to be located at the front area on both sides, forming a corridor on the opposite inward side. Before entering the private chamber is a tea room, which also acts as a second entry space internally. The design offers a leisure area and also a living space with privacy for the owner. The entrance uses the back of the television partition to form a linear entry space. The ceiling is decorated with dark wood to suggest a division of space. The small television partition maintains the design of both sides and the ceiling overhanging design to offer transparency in circulation and vision. The dark leather sofa, beige chairs, soft decorations with low hues, and the setting of lighting forms a modern and simple Japanese style for the living room. The opposite side is a dining area with a white long dining table and natural wooden chairs. Standing in between the living and dining rooms, a contrast of colors divided the spaces into two areas. The setting can maximize the sense of space with a minimal number of furniture.
