View of river and mountain opposite site. I tried to have a natural and modest appearance that blends into the mountains and rivers.
I hope that the trees in the garden will change the seasons and the appearance will change over time beautifully, making it a place where people in the area can feel at ease.
Our family doesn’t need a bigger house than we need. I think that a small house can live affluently.
This house doubles as an office, So I tried to secure an appropriate distance between the living space and the work space.
Although the corridor is a narrow entrance, it creates a feeling of change and an expanse as a space experience by giving a feeling of spaciousness and brightness beyond the line of sight. In addition to the role of a passage, it also plays the role of storage at the center of the house.
The living room aims to be a space surrounded by open and gentle light with a beautiful view. I hope that the large plastered walls will create a gradation of light.
The balcony is an open and private space surrounded by a large roof. This large eaves blurs the line between the inside and the outside. I think this intermediate area is the most comfortable space.
