The 1st floor is dining room, kitchen, family space.
The 2nd floor is study and reading space.
The 3rd floor is bedroom.
And it is connected to the space on a roof.
The courtyard not only becomes open the interior, but can feel a courtyard on the space on a roof.
The continuity of the internal space and external space will increase by using space of the courtyard and the roof space.
Although a courtyard becomes exclusive easily at a narrow site, the courtyard is not completed only inside a residence by giving continuity with a courtyard on the space on a roof.
