"House A -Based on memories of the City"

     All places have their own unique history and special memories. The neighborhood of Daikanyama has developed around the core of the former Asakura residence. A big frame was installed on the boundary line between Hillside Terrace’s parking lot and the Asakura residence. Consequently, the parking lot became a space where people could appreciate the view of the residence as if it was a painting.

     At night the hedge around the house was lit up and the ‘painting’ assumed an entirely new look. This work attracted passersby of Daikanyama making them aware of the residence and putting them in touch with the history of the neighborhood.
