House in Izumisano

Best Implemented Project of Private Residence

About the project
A house in the suburbs. A quiet and idyllic location with rice fields scattered around. How to create a bright and open house while considering privacy on a land with a deep frontage? became an issue. There are existing houses on both sides of the site, and the front, which is on the road side, has a surprisingly large amount of traffic. I was able to find a solution by making good use of Since the building is also long in depth, a courtyard is laid out in front of the kitchen as you go from the entrance to the back, and the living room has a high ceiling, so you can gradually get a sense of openness as you go to the back. The ceiling is made of plywood to create a warm interior. It is a house that is thoroughly particular about storage in the right place. It has become an efficient and well-concealed house where you can neatly put away the things you need in various places in your daily life line.
