Moiwa Kita House

It is a house where two parents and children live, a husband and a mother.
My husband's hobby is tinkering with soil, and he bought a three-dimensional site with a field at the end of the hill.
However, in order to climb the hill, I had to make a large detour, and I thought of a way to connect by architecture.
We planned a spiral road leading to the hill so that the cat (tricycle) could carry the soil from bottom to top.
Two buildings were built to support the road, and a staircase was set up to build a suspension bridge between the buildings.
Each room has a window leading to the road. The road became a veranda that expanded the room and became a migratory garden.
