This is for the private cram school located in Toyota city, as a home to Toyota. It is to be used sometimes as a gallery or a meeting room. Structurally, the building consists of some cedar plates which are arranged at intervals of 30 cm. Sunshine from the highest point between the plates of the cedar is a duet with nature and architecture, also is an important element that connects the inside and outside. The light is the light of the treasure every encounter, for it will never recur. The light sticks out of indoor space like the arrow, and shoots a divine shine at time.
