In a northern part of Yamanashi City, surrounded by vineyards and with a panoramic view of Mt.Fuji, House O by SAKUMAESHIMA is a two-storey wooden home for a family of four that has been conceived architecturally as a vessel that can be changeable as the family grows.

Drawing from common sense aspects of traditional Japanese architecture, the floor plan is based on a grid of 730mm with the entire structure made up of wooden columns and beams.

As the life cycle of the family changes, the configuration of rooms and the location of objects can be changed.

The shape of the building and the design of the exterior are both designed to be simple, keeping in mind that it is the family that lives there that plays the main role, and valuing the flow of life that takes place there.
