House in Nakadai 1

The site sits along the hill where view opens up to the east. Although wood structure was applied, we achieved to structurally support the house only with outside walls enabling to create the large interior space without being obstructed by any columns or partitions.
The floors were covered with aluminum panels. Unlike the typical image of metal being cold and hard, the aluminum panels gently reflect the sunlight providing the warm and soft interior spaces.
