Entry Description

This project is located in a new town with a rich natural environment in the northernmost part of Minoh City, Osaka Prefecture. However, the surrounding houses were lined with houses unrelated to the rich natural environment and regional characteristics. The client's young couple were looking for a house to live with nature in such a land. The light roof, deep eaves, nested small rooms and two pillars like standing trees made the light environment as if it were a part of nature rather than cutting out the natural environment as a landscape.
