This project is located in rural area of Mii city in Fukuoka Prefecture Japan. The building was designed to have minimum opening on the outer side in order to protect privacy of the house, and create a stylistic beautiful façade.
The house is composed of 3 main masses consist of garage, entrance hall and Japanese style room, and Living spaces. By placing 2 inner garden between the northern part of the building which consist bedrooms and living room with southern part which consist the entrance hall and Japanese style room it become possible to let enough sunlight to enter all rooms providing natural daylighting and ventilation to the whole house。 Entrance hall and living room is connected with a hallway with big windows on each side delivering a sense of openness.
The roof direction of the front building and building on the back is opposing against each other、this was an effort to create a sculptural form that able to optimizing natural daylighting and by placing the living space on the back part of the site it ensure more privacy to the inhabitant of the house
Inner space of the house is design to show same spatial expression with the building form by making the ceiling have same inclination with the roof, utilizing red cedar producing a gentle, warm, bright spaces.
At night the building will appear more appealing and dramatic with the effect of lighting design of the house.
