The pitch of roof is united with the typical roof of the local house of Ibukijima island.
The color of the outer wall is based on color investigation of the exterior wall of more than 100 local houses.
The selected color is chosen from not 1st group of the black system of more than 50% but the 2nd group of dark brown system of more than 25%.
According to choosing the 2nd group, I intended to design an architecture which is continuous with landscape of the island and, at the same time, delicately independent form it by slight gap that the group of color is no large majority.
