House-I

N.A.O as Architects

Around the planned site, houses, rental apartments, company buildings, factories, container storage areas, etc. were mixed. In addition, it could be assumed that the building would be isolated. When I first stood at the planned site in such a situation, I felt that I didn't want to actively open up to the surroundings. Also, the client didn't want an open way of building. As a result, one theme was "close outside and open inside." Another theme is "a large space both physically and sensuously." This was also a request from the client. From these two themes, we started the design with the concept of "closing it to the outside and giving it a large expanse inside."
