The mountainside property is surrounded by vast rice paddies and fields for growing vegetables, and a narrow waterway winding around them. Between these fields are scattered houses and sheds. On what was previously a rice paddy, we planned to build a one-story house to be lived in by our coworker’s family of four.Save this picture!© Yuko TadaFirstly, we placed a 17 x 10 m roof in the middle of the property. Next, by keeping a 14 x 6.4 m one-span steel frame slightly angled, in order to support the roof, we were able to construct a large single structure.Save this picture!© Yuko TadaAnd then, below the structure, we placed floor, nested rooms, furniture and curtains, giving a direction, respectively. They are surrounded with the frame which consisted of thin steel materials, exterior walls made of wood and glass. Solid steel props, of exterior walls made of wood and glass ( 32 x 50 mm ) or of curtains ( 30 x 30mm ) are large in number, so the dimensions of them are small. In contrast, square tubular steel columns ( 250 x 250 mm ) supporting the large roof are few in number, yet we can recognize the direction of this space by their large dimensions.

From simplifying these specific natural land formations and following coordination of people’s lives in the area, we composed environmental elements. Based on the characteristics of these environmental elements, we composed fitting architectural elements.Save this picture!© Yuko TadaThis space has revealed itself as not only having the characteristics of a house, but having those of a landscape. Through this project, we planned the situation of “living in an environment,” rather than, “living in a house.”Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessSYN City ExhibitionEventKotor Architectural Prison Summer SchoolEvent Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Year:  2012 “COPY” Area:  118 m² Area:  118 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Architects: Kimura Matsumoto Area Area of this architecture project Housescenter_img “COPY” CopyAbout this officeKimura MatsumotoOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWakayamaHousesJapanPublished on April 18, 2013Cite: “Shino / Kimura Matsumoto” 18 Apr 2013.
