A container house made to promote local wood larch in the Saku area of Nagano Prefecture Japan.
It has a floor area of 9.9M2 and a size of about 2.3x5m. It can be moved by a 4t truck by putting an iron pipe under the steel base. Although Shinshu larch is a beautiful red color and relatively strong among conifers, it has not been used as a building material so far because of its large warpage and twist, but due to the progress of drying technology, the concern has been resolved. It is expected to be used for various purposes. Here, logs, pillars and beams of structural materials, floors, walls, eaves, furniture, etc. are mostly finished with larch, and visitors can experience the material and space.
The three-dimensionally twisted roof is characteristic, and the interior is a wooden structure that is carved by the carpenter who has the knowledge of the local traditional construction method. In addition, a new blue larch that tends to give a dark and smooth impression, I tried a different expression such as blue material (color change material due to fungi) that is not normally used as the floor material, and 30 mm wideness larch material with unevenness is used to the inner wall. Also, as an accent, a clay wall collected in the local Kita-Aiki Village, Nagano Prefecture is used.
Lighting and air conditioning are provided, and it can be made to order and can be used for various purposes such as in stores and tiny houses.
