Sakawa MONOGATARI

LANDHUIS in Sakawa

--as chapter VII of "SAKAWA monogatari" –

This project was started with his stimulative comment…

We would like you to be not only a good listener but at the same time an un-censored "SPARRING-PARTNER" …

After so many turns and twists, construction was started on September 2006.

Client named it LANDHUIS (Dutch). A kind of "country house" he said.

My image of this house is a BUTTERFLY, which is just landing on green leaves.

Structure designer (collaborator) calls that BEETLE by structural reason…


He has been editing "Sakawa MONOGATARI" which is formed by short stories written by him and others. How did they get to Sakawa to build their [Last] house? Incidents, which happened on the way to getting used to Life in Japan. Sometimes he refers Dutch wine culture and that in Japan. Plants, flowers in Sakawa and so on and so on…


I want to participate that somehow. To fill my part of chapter VII of "Sakawa MONOGATARI", I'm starting this blog now. It goes as a diary about building site, but sometimes I would jump to memories of "fighting"…
