This private house is situated in Showacho, downtown of Osaka, where houses are lined closely. In order to protect residents’ privacy each window needs different level of transparency according to floor levels and window direction. Semi-transparent linen fabrics are installed besides different windows varying the amount of fabrics: more in street level and less in upper floor. The character of weft-knitted fabric features curly edges, which brings soft and loose impression into space.
