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.

The site is surrounded by rice field where wind blows through well.

This is one of the areas with much quantity of wind-generated electricity in Japan, and this project is based on the concept of “wind”.

The house is for a family of four, married couple and their children.

Their parents’ house is located on the north side of their ground. So we arranged their low-rise house on the south side. The arrangement provides an open space which ensures adequate insolation and ventilation against the parents’ house. The open space is also used for easy communication with the parents and it keeps good relation among them.
