House H – Hiroyuki Shinozaki Architects



Hiroyuki Shinozaki Architects:

A house for young couple and their child, located in Matsudo, Chiba Prefecture, Japan. Matsudo City has a background that has developed as a residential area on the outskirts of Tokyo from the 1960s. This house was planned rebuilding of the house, which was built at that time. Hiroyuki Shinozaki said: ai???At first we placed a big roof in the site, and arranged the eight Y-shaped wooden frames in it. We planned to hook up second floors and loft floors to the frames at different Eight columns stretch up to the pitched roof, overlapping one another to support a split-level first floor containing two bedrooms and a traditional Japanese room (Tatami room), as well as lofts over this first floor level. ai???Although whole house is just one space under big roof, it divided loosely with Y shaped frames and floorboards. So people can feel each other staying at different placesai??? the architect added.This Y-shaped frames made of bonded wood run through the entire house and every furniture, flooring and stairs are wooden matching the timber Y columns. The connection to the first level is a staircase while ladders lead to the lofts. ai???We proposed the house as living symbol by utilizing actually a big roof and structural parts in their daily life rather than just imaginative
