The resident did not rely on energy in South Kyushuof high temperature and humidity, and hoped for ecology life with the environment.
The wind of land is felt, rain water is saved, and it enjoys gardening. It is native life. The site is a residential quarter that extends on a Shirasu plateau near from the Kagoshima City downtown. I then thought native house (eco-house) with the soil (Shirasu) as the material that formed this plateau native by the made Shirasu block.

This interior architectural remodel transformed an existing awkward, dark, ranch house into a modern, light and view filled space – with a limited budget. With strategic moves, the interior architecture was transformed. The plan was rationalized: the kitchen was almost tripled in size; the plan was made efficient; an entry way was gained by creatively modifying a hallway; relocating the laundry area created room for a new office, created privacy for the powder room, and allowed for a much needed storage wall for the children. Exterior windows and doors were replaced with wider, taller, stained wood openings. Phase II includes work to the exterior architecture of the house and began in the fall of 2013.

The building is in an upgrading area by replacing unqualified and obsolete construction. The size of the project, however, and its location on a side street than the major artery of Viale G. Bovio, urban section of the SS16 Adriatica, confer to this building a exclusively architectonic role, with no possibility of influencing the city around, if not its presence qualifying.

The first requirement that the Owners, a young couple with two children, expressed was that their new home should have a casual, barefoot feel, like a vacation destination, with strong indoor-outdoor connections. Their 2.8 acre site, with gentle slopes to the south and mature landscaping on all sides was the perfect setting to create a home that would fully engage the beautiful landscape for family living.

Rieteiland Oost in IJburg is an island in Amsterdam with several detached houses, most of which border onto the IJ at the rear and are closed in at the front by a collective courtyard. This residence opens onto the IJ with a view over the Diemerzeedijk. Maximum use is made of this open view by raising the living area to the bell level and putting the garaging, together with the front entrance and workroom, on the subterranean level.
