As a countermeasure against moisture from the slopes, the ground floor is reinforced concrete construction with the main floor raised from the ground.
The angle of sun entry varies as time changes, similar to a sundial.
Outside of the double hexagon main area, there is a step up of about 50 centimeters on the floor, making it easy to see the outside scenery from the back of the building.
The fall colors and the interior of the room are matched to make the same color tone.
The outside scenery is amplified and reflected on the mirrors mounted in the room.
The space inside of the hexagons has tatami flooring.
You can feel that you are facing in any direction, surrounded by trees whichever way you gaze.
The changing shadows and reflections of light track the passage of time.
