Nobutada's pied-a-terre

Jeroen Lamers's Japonius Tyrannus has an interesting take on Nobunaga's son, Nobutada's secondary residence at Azuchi. 

Lamers (p. 142)  "There is evidence that Nobutada, Nobukatsu, and Nobutaka had their respective pieds-a-terre in Azuchi.  As regards Nobutada and Nobukatsu, they received instructions on 14 June 1580 from their father 'to construct residences for themselves' at Azuchi."

This is a picture of Oda Nobutada's Azuchi mansion at Azuchi Castle.  Could this be Nobutada's pied-a-terre?  His main headquarters at the time was Gifu Castle. I have not being fully engaged on Azuchi Castle over the years due to other projects.  That being said, this is an interesting subject.

Tenka no tame!
