Two houses in Minamirinkan

Design Associates Nakamura as Architects

This is a project of two houses for sale. We planned to use a lot of wood for the interior materials and furniture in the house. By using different colors of wood, we designed a warm living space with different characters. The two houses are divided into small volumes of roofs to harmonize with the city. The slope direction of each roof is changed to harmonize with the townscape. The unevenness of the exterior walls creates different shadows and changes the expression over time. We were able to create two houses that give the impression of being two integrated volumes.
