DESCRIPTION:

The project consists of four single-family houses on the coast of Aamchit, Lebanon as well as the rehabilitation of the existing landscape and old houses.

The site slopes west towards the Mediterranean, its angle allowing for embedding the houses in the landscape in such a way that the front is open to the view and breeze whereas the other sides of the house are protected by earth. Each house consists of a double-layer wall that retains the earth from the east and slopes with the land north and south.

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

 
December 6th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

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.
