mount fuji architects studio uses CLT wood for prefab housing in japan

masahiro harada and mao harada of mount fuji architects studio have been awarded this year’s g-mark japan good design award for their kiraku-no-ie prefabricated housing. demonstrating how the use of CLT, a cross-laminated wood panel material, can benefit the construction of low-cost, simple structures, the project seeks to increase the product’s demand and ensure its stable and inexpensive supply in japan.mount fuji architects studio uses CLT wood for prefab housing in japanimages by koji fujii / nacasa&partners inc.

 

 

produced by japanese company aqura, the kiraku-no-ie houses are made almost entirely out of CLT, making a case for its high heat and sound insulating properties. mount fuji architects studio has developed the prefab constructions as an easy-to-build example of how the material can be used. ‘raw wood made in japan can be used, and the government actively encourages its use,’ explains the tokyo-based firm, ‘being an excellent material, it has rarely been used for ordinary houses due to its high cost.’
