‘Outside In’ in Yamanashi, Japan by Takeshi Hosaka Architects

Tuesday, November 29th, 2011

Article source: Takeshi Hosaka Architects

Gradation of scenery, from outdoor area to inside area

The project was launched when I was commissioned to enlarge a house for a couple in their 30’s and their three daughters living in Yamanashi Prefecture. On my first visit there, I found the houses of one story and two stories both stand close together but that there remain some empty lots, farming fields, wooded areas and unpaved roads. I remember that the bounty and generosity of the place inspired me.
