This project is a private residence which located in a lush surrounded by mountains in western Hyogo Prefecture of Japan. There are 4 large cherry trees planted in the center of this site which beautiful blooms every year. One moment of the nature scale created a powerful landscape beyond any architectural peculiarities space. The strong power also is the originality of this architecture.
This residence was planned as a second house for the client who can enjoy a relaxed life and live with those lovely cherry blossoms. Client asked to views cherry blossoms from inside of the house, and the living space should be created as to feel the light and wind.
Functions of housing are dispersed in four wooden boxes, staggered angles for each direction respectively to views the mountains and cherry around. Living room is setting in the center of this house where surrounding by those 4 boxes.
Living room is framed as a big roof which covered by a translucent glass fiber-reinforced panels, hard to believe there is indoor space because it is so brightness. These panels filter the sunshine that is the reason why this space is filled with soft lights. Even this is an enclosed space and surrounded by various rooms, but feel free openness in whatever the season was.At night, inside of the light shining out the form of the roof, it is highlight in the darkness clearly.
Continuity of internal and external, drawn into the internal from external, spread outside space to inside, these are the challenge what we are taking in this architecture.
