This house is located near the sea, about 90km away from Tokyo.This is a small weekend home for a couple who loves surfing.They can observe the waves every morning from the 2nd floor or balcony.
First, think of a small and simple 60m2 house, and then arrange (grow) the space and parts necessary for the couple’s life (the dirt floor, balcony, a little large bathroom, eaves, pergola, etc.). This method can imagine many other types of homes. This method allows a complex combination of exterior and interior spaces on large sites.
The total ventilation volume of all rooms is 480m3 / h at maximum.We can replace all the air in the room of this house in 20 minutes. This performance can be achieved using a typical residential ventilator.And windows are installed in places where the draft can easily pass through the house.
Since there are two residents, I don’t think there is any problem even if there are several visitors .I intend to make sure that the air flow can be ventilated in each room as much as possible. A little more research is needed.
As of 2021,the infectious diseases that cover the world are not over yet. It is a house that we fumbled with the owner and the builder while the guidelines were not clear.
As a result, We came up with the idea of building a small, well-ventilated house on a relatively large site, not in an urban area like Tokyo.
