tokyo-based office archiplace (ishii masahiro, kondo tamiko) has sent us images of 'house in gunma', 
a two-level private residence in the central prefecture of japan. located on a generous plot measuring 
over 1650 m2, the l-shaped design was conceived to respect and work around a large mature tree on site.
