There is different types of skylight, wide, small like aperture・・・.
Skylight gives special space if we make good use of it.
In the case of wide skylight, the interior space changes into open and relaxing space like exterior with careful thought of summer strong sunlight.
But it causes leaking of rain. So we are careful not to leak with attention to detail of it.
By reducing the number of components and simplify the detail, skylight cause difficulty in leaking of rain and its visual effects become beautiful.
The edge of a tread is called Nosing. (Danbana in Japanese)
The contrasty nosing is not only neat visual effects but also effective functioning of measure for safety.
Because when we go down stairs which we can't instantly make out the nosing, it appears to be flat floor and there's a danger of missing our step.

In the case of this house, we chose Chinese quince as nosing and embed it in tread with a little convex.
The bump about 1 millimeter serves as nonslip, not walking interruption.

There is a variety of the shape of hand rail, round, square・・・・.
We design the shape that matches the house on a case-by-case basis.
When you looked closely at the pictures of hand rail, did you notice grasping part and the end were round shape?
And the most important thing is the fixing height of the hand rail.
It can be said that hand rail is physical support in walking and the waist height is easy-to-use in a general way. That's what the height of a stick is waist height.
Hand rail is a consecutive stick.
We recommend a sliding door as a bath room door. Because the door that hung open won't get in the way and the bath room can be used commodious.
Controversial thing is a rail of threshold. In the case of wooden rail, it will spoil rapidly by moisture content. So we are devising the idea that we use a stainless bar as a rail of threshold and don't put on the floor
There is a resin frame, but it is ticky-tacky. The sliding door made of Japanese cypress is best for bath room of cypress wall.
