nanometer architecture has renovated a seaside villa located on a beach in japan‘s aichi prefecture. as a solution to the strong sea breezes which hit the residence’s walls and blew sand inside its spaces, the japanese architects have transformed the garage hut of the house into a barrier that shelters both the interior and the garden.

nanometer architecture has wrapped the garage hut in a frost-type, polycarbonate corrugated panel, which extends towards the villa’s ground level outer walls and parts of the ceiling inside. now protected from strong winds and sand, the garden functions as an extension of the interior spaces, connected via a large circulation route that runs through the newly created, semi-outdoor kitchen/living room. the villa’s exterior is mainly clad in a combination of the polycarbonate material with black brickwork, which continues within its interior spaces, mixed together with wood and raw concrete.
