working alongside furniture designer taiji fujimori, jun igarashi began the design with analyzing the concept of windows. rethinking their use as just openings in the walls, the architect thought of new functions and potential for windows to appear within the home. meanwhile, fujimori explored approaches for furniture that involved producing space and function simultaneously, instead of designing furniture separately from the room.

the amalgamation of the designer’s ideas resulted in windows becoming openings with depth, leading to unfamiliar spaces between what we usually think of as inside and outside. the exhibition house resulting from this concept has a room like the pivot of a folding fan, with windows extending deeply towards the opening, creating individual programs for specific purposes such as relaxing, bathing, concentrating, or dining.
