Ishibe House in Shiga Prefecture, Japan by ALTS DESIGN OFFICE

Tuesday, October 13th, 2015

Article source: ALTS DESIGN OFFICE 

Concept

The hope of this client is to live in a house just like a renovated warehouse. The type of houses is diversified into various kinds, and such a house is prevalent on the ground of financial terms. However, there’re problems as regarding heat insulation capacity and construction to convert a warehouse into a house. As a result, it costs the same amount as new construction. Therefore, we built a new house like a renovated warehouse pursuing diversified and productive open spaces.
