Entry Description

A single storied house cladded in metal sheets in a minimal form, kept low to respect the scenery around the site. With the steel framing as a main structure, the module of traditional Japanese wooden house is employed in standardization of the dimensions composing the house. The wood sliding doors enhance the depth and the continuity of the interior space. Fully opened to the south façade, the unique views from each room are created by the water scenery and the changed ground levels. The house equally values the building and its exterior space, aiming to reflect abundant changs by the seasons
