演奏を楽しむ場所を玄関にした2世帯住宅。玄関の前後は庭として計画し、風通しがよく自然を取り入れ、玄関の左右はそれぞれの世帯住居として計画し、家族を繋げています。

This two-family home has an entryway that can be used to enjoy musical performances.
The front and back of the entryway were designed as a garden, incorporating the pleasant breeze of the outdoors. The left and right side of the entryway are designed as residential space for each family, with the entryway connecting them together.

世界的に著名な指揮者である小林研一郎氏が自ら演奏するピアノコンサートがこけら落としで行われました。この玄関では、その後も各種演奏会が行われ、地域の方々が気軽に訪れています。普段は世帯間の団らんの場として機能しています。

World-renowned conductor Ken-Ichiro Kobayashi gave a piano recital to mark the opening of the space. The entryway is now used for various musical performances, with people visiting from across the region. It typically functions as a social gathering space for the families.
