ロレックスのメントープロジェクトのサポートによって、大谷海岸に地域の漁業活動やコミュニティの中心となるみんなの家を漁師のみなさんと計画しました。 このみんなの家の大部分は外に向かって開いた半屋外となっていて、屋根は3つの部屋によって支えられています。その屋根の中心には空を見上げることができるように開口を設けました。3つの部屋とベンチは中央を向いていて、それらの3つの入り口を通してそれぞれ別の風景を眺めることができます。キッチンのある部屋は、天気のよい日には建具を開けて外と連続してつながり、開放的に使えるようにしました。水辺に一番近い部屋は、縁側として楽しむことができる空間にしました。そして、トイレのある部屋は空と部屋の中心に向かってトップライトをつくり、外の気配や光を感じることができるようにしました。また、建物の周りの地面の高さはフォークリフトで中に入れるように内部と同じ高さにしています。
