As our client wanted a space with a feeling of openness, our main concern was how to ensure both privacy and a sense of harmony with the surroundings.Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaThis white house, which stands on a northeastern corner plot, projects a closed-off exterior with only a continuous series of horizontal windows on each side, obstructing views from the outside looking in. The ring-shaped wing wall protruding boldly outwards from the top of the entrance, which also accommodates a parking space, creates a semi-outdoor space that resembles a pilotis structure. This intermediate zone, delicately poised between exterior and interior, produces a measured and balanced sense of privacy.

The rigid-frame structure that incorporates a number of steel posts within it allowed us to create a timber-framed house whose south-facing facade features windows that can be opened all the way.

This particular feature served to frame and “borrow” the aerial landscape outside the house, bringing it into the interior while also obstructing lines of sight that might peer into it. The grating on the floor of the balcony admits light to the bottom floor, while also shielding the inhabitants from prying outside eyes at ground level.

Although this configuration creates a loose separation between the living room and dining/kitchen, the continuous slanting ceiling serves to unite the entire space, creating a quiet sense of calm.Project gallerySee allShow lessVideo: NA House by Sou Fujimoto ArchitectsArticlesMusée de la Romanité / Elizabeth de PortzamparcArticles Share Architects: APOLLO Architects & Associates Area Area of this architecture project Area:  104 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project last_img
