The kitchen, bookshelves, and storage space are arranged in look like a box, and the fittings and partitions are also finished with the same material. These boxes (wooden boxes/co-ba-ko) are attached to each structural wall and beam, and placed vertically and horizontally. The wooden boxes are made of lauan plywood, and the walls are finished with white plaster, giving the interior a distinct color scheme and texture. In addition, some of the walls are primed so that partitions and fittings can be added later, making the house ready to accommodate the growth and changes of the family. This wooden box house will become a home where the family can accumulate various moments and grow and change.
