The house is designed for a couple and two children, and is located in Kanagawa Prefecture.
In this project we explored new possibilities of wood in terms of structural and environmental functions. The structural system is composed of two wooden ‘rings’ that intersect each other, creating a complex and unique spatial configuration. The wood surface is unfinished so that you can feel its natural scent and texture. In addition, the unfinished wood surface works effectively in terms of humidity control.
In this house you can enjoy and experience the natural feel of wood with your five senses.
