WORKS - Houses and Housings

MAISON E - Iwaki, Japan, 2006

メゾン E

This 1200 square meter private residence planned for a family of two generations is located on the high plane of a series of tiered properties, and overlooks the ‘Company Dormitory’ to the rolling mountain ranges spreading across the horizon. The house borders a busy thoroughfare and a quiet residential district so the residence is planned to be inward-looking and private with various internal gardens and courtyards while maintaining the extraordinary views from the second floor. The plan is based on a tartan grid of small and large squares which creates a natural pattern for living spaces and circulation spaces and interior and exterior spaces. The grid is comprised from a steel structure of cruciform-shaped columns.
