House as a continuation of memory

Ogawa Nishikori Architects as Architects

This house is in a serene landscape in Iwaki city, Fukushima Prefecture, where a 60s couple lives and their children and their families come back on the weekend. Through the dialogue with them, we found they have a special feeling for their former house and the scenery there. Therefore, in this project, we thought about reconstructing the fragments of various scenes of the former house.

 

The blue-green tiled roof was their most favorite. That was reused for the entrance wall and carport roof. Scenery of terrace on the roof, time to relax on south veranda, view from the dining room window, line of flow for housework, etc. were also they had loved. We created a space by composing such material and immaterial things.

 

This house has become a new but very familiar place for residents.
