The plan was a tight budget house. I thought that the Japanese traditional method “ITAKURA” was the best under severe conditions. “ITAKURA” is a construction method with beauty, heat insulation and fire prevention performance.
The size of a building is inevitably determined by securing one parking space on a limited site. Budget and site conditions made it very difficult to secure space for three families.
I decided to create a loft by making the roof steep, and make it a children’s room. Windows were minimized to secure things and the location of the family.
