In this case it is proposed that a series of holes, through which one can see the garden and thus, it can perform the action.
Because of the early retirement of the parents, the leisure time in the Naked House is higher, so the house must be reformed for these new activities which will be developed.
The skin of the housing provides a diffuse light, creating an open space and translucent. This hides the outside, what happens inside the house. But at the same time, impedes vision outward from the interior.
This proposal consists of opening several holes in the facade, in keeping with the light of day, trying not to break the aesthetics of the home. It using transparent polycarbonate sheets, located in the outer envelope, providing vision to the garden outside. On the inside, it will be a system to try hiding these holes, when not needed. So trying that is not perceived from the inside, without breaking the continuity of the envelope.
As for the new outer shell, it would only be necessary to install in areas where the holes should go. Thus we should not change the entire envelope. The proposed material is a polycarbonate sheet 1 cm thick, because it is a material that was not available in the XX century. It is common to use this material for greenhouses or roofed enclosures, guard houses or soundproof walls. It presents good thermal insulation properties, good transparency and high resistance to breakage. In short, it is a suitable material for this constructive solution, because well as the features already mentioned, provides interesting solutions in regions with earthquake hazards (such as Japan) and for fast applications in disaster areas. Therefore, this material is symbolically continues the work of Shigeru Ban.
As for the inward envelope, the proposed system is to continue the original interior fabric, but creating a network of hidden zippers which would cover the windows to the naked eye. In case you want to see, just have to open and fold the fabric. It would be like sewing with zippers the inside envelope to show or hide the windows based on usage, and thus does not alter the aesthetics of the home.

Este detalle es el resultado final de una evolución, que mediante prueba y error ha dado lugar a un sistema de ventanas diseñadas en base a la acción de pintar el jardín desde distintas posiciones en el interior de la casa. Estas ventanas respetan la piel interior y exterior del edificio, ya que cuando no están en uso, la piel interior simula permanecer continua. El mecanismo funciona de la siguiente manera: el panel recubierto de tela se puede desplazar hacia dentro, y después subir hasta ofrecer un hueco de un metro y medio.
