“House in Irino” in Miyazaki, Japan by Takeshi Ishiodori Architecture

Tuesday, December 6th, 2016

Article source: Takeshi Ishiodori Architecture

It is a house built in Aya-cho, Miyazaki Prefecture, which has the largest evergreen forest zone in Japan. There were three conditions on the premises.

1) There are restrictions on color and form because it is within the landscape area.

2) The traffic volume is high along the main road.

3) Leave a wonderful cherry tree on the site.

While fulfilling these three conditions, I aimed for a house that melts while giving stimulation to the cityscape.
