From the architect: The garage space is established on the first level, to house the client’s favorite Maserati Shamal, among other Italian cars and motorcycles. The family’s residential space is primarily on the second level. In order to secure the tranquility of the second floor, the first floor was planned with durable, reinforced concrete.

A courtyard was inserted at the end of the garage, to allow for the release of sound and vehicle exhaust. The exterior walls of the courtyard are made of hinoki. The sound-absorbing properties of this wood are employed to reduce reverberations. The foliage of the courtyard not only serves as a buffer for engine noise, but also contributes to air purification.
