furumori koichi architectural design studio has developed the residence’s design together with the owners, who had come up with several floor plans already at their first meeting. in order to materialize as many of their ideas as possible, the architects have built the house on a grid of beams, pillars and walls, which can be changed in the future due to the use of general carpentering technology.
the project comprises two volumes, a larger one that encloses most interior functions, such as the living room, kitchen, and bedrooms, and a smaller one where a library, a covered, open-air terrace, and a warehouse are located. a central outdoor courtyard between the volumes is directly connected to the house’s common, social areas through glass sliding doors. constructed mainly in wood and concrete, the residence incorporates a lattice ceiling that adds warmth and coziness to all interior spaces.
