Taichi Nishishita Architect & Associates builds House in Hoshioka

 

House in Hoshioka by Taichi Nishishita Architect & Associates presents the architect’s own residence and studio in Matsuyama, Japan, immersed in nature. The design aims for a natural and unobtrusive appearance, harmonizing with the Ono River and Hoshioka mountain surroundings. The focus is on creating a built landscape that seamlessly integrates with the natural environment, emphasizing the beauty that evolves through seasonal and long-term changes. The residence, serving both as an atelier and a home, strikes a balance between living and working spaces.

Design Unveils gentle transitions between work and living spaces

 

The eaves offer a generous yet intimate scale, contributing to a sense of relief. Strategic placement of boxes and bookcases establishes a gentle separation between the work area and family flow. Upon entering the foyer, the high sidelight directs attention to the sky, aiming to evoke a loungepit-like experience when seated. The design unfolds gradually, revealing a series of scenes in narrow and open spaces, bright and dark areas, creating a sense of anticipation. The architecture by Taichi Nishishita Architect & Associates undergoes rich transformations over time, offering diverse experiences from morning to night, season to season, and over the span of several years.
