Wooden Box House in Saitama, Japan by Suzuki architects

 
November 1st, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Suzuki architects

A house-cum-office for the mother who runs a local hair salon, and for the father who works as a writer for 40 years. On the first floor, there is a salon and a dressing/sleeping room in the back for the mother. When windows are open, wind goes through the large space under the eaves facing the town. Lively activities arising here will add energy to the town. On the second floor, there is a writing/sleeping room for the father where he can enjoy the landscape of the next garden, and a dining kitchen also serving as a buffer of the couple’s lives. This architecture has a simple plan reflecting the couple’s lifestyles, and wood over time gives the taste and warmth to architecture in various ways.

Evolution of  the multifamily apartment stack:

In most Indian cities, the typical urban multifamily residence or apartment stack evolves from a semi detached single family home built on a suburban or peri-urban plot. This evolution occurs with the inevitable agglomeration of such plotted developments, both planned and unplanned, within the urban sprawl.
