The purpose of this study is to clarify the theory of house design by Mamoru Yamada, especially through the design of "Tsurumi residence" in 1931. Before designing this house, Yamada had been in Europe to participate in the international congress of CIAM and to visit several housing projects in 1929-1930, which was reported as an article "Minimum size of living house" in 1931. And after designing Tsurumi residence, he wrote about the past, present and future of Japanese houses in his another article "House of tomorrow" which was published in 1943. In this study, through the consideration of the relationship between the design of Tsurumi residence and contents of these two articles written by him, his theory of house design and his methods to make house comfortable were extracted.
