The house sits atop a hill that overlooks the city, this was the main argument we had to put the two main bedrooms facing forward. The bedrooms are two separate volumes that intersect the main concrete “shell” of the house, the front and back are kept open with huge glass walls; to let the most sunlight in at the back side, and to observe the view at the front.

House in Kamisawa, Japan by Tato Architects

 
May 24th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Tato Architects

This building is a reconfiguration of a traditional Japanese wooden house. Its wooden frames were exposed after the removal of unnecessary parts. Only by inserting curved walls into it, spatial functions were created. A similar challenge was experienced in the process of designing “Hut with the Arc Wall”, a public toilet in Shodoshima. There, space was defined by a 9mm steel curved wall, which was built under the wooden roof structure by reference to traditional soy sauce factories in that area. An inspiration from cedar barrels of say source was formalized in the curved wall, which showed an aesthetic of self- supporting structure. The only thing to be regrettable was newly built wooden frames. Ideally, it should have been moved from an old house around that area and rebuilt in a new place, but the required tight schedule didn’t allow us to spend time to look for a suitable existing building. However, since then, we have seen it as a distinctive potential for reconfigurations to divide space with curved walls, which is not related to the outer structure.
