- Ehime House
- Ehime prefecture, Japan
Project Won the gold medal in the Asia Design Prize 2021
The site is located in Ehime prefecture which is in Shikoku island, Southern part of Japan.
There are some high-rise apartments around the site, therefore we planned it to be a closed setting in order to keep privacy. Having that circumstance, the living room designed to have high-ceiling in order to get the appropriate South sun light from the huge window which is one of the few windows in the house. The kitchen with a dining table is angled to its living area to generate extra space and make an impression of spaciousness.
On the exterior material, charred cedar which is a well-known product in the area is used with steel plates. The combination of the natural and artificial material would bring out a unique expression as a whole.
