House of Wakayama by Yoshio Oono Architect & Associates

The roof of this house in Hashimoto, Japan, by designers Yoshio Oono Architect & Associates folds around to become an exterior canopy with triangular reveals.

Behind the shade of the orange canopy, the glazed facade of House of Wakayama has sliding doors that open to expose the interior spaces to the elements.

On the first floor an open plan room projects out across the building entrance to meet the canopy.

和歌山県橋本市の閑静な住宅地に建つ、夫婦とその子供達の専用住宅の計画である。

House of Wakayama by Yoshio Oono Architect & Associates

廻りには低層の住宅が立ち並び穏やかな風景が広がり、大きな空がよりいっそういっそう大きく感じられ、比較的身近に自然を感じられる敷地であった。

House of Wakayama by Yoshio Oono Architect & Associates

自然を出来るだけ生活空間へ取り込む事が設計の与条件として感じ取る事が出来た。

『内部と外部の境界線をあいまいとする。』

House of Wakayama by Yoshio Oono Architect & Associates

外の要素と内の要素を近ずける為に、建物で大きな軒下の日陰を作り、生活空間として最小限のエリアを建具で囲う事により

建具の開閉により内部と外部の境界線をあいまいにする事を考えた。

House of Wakayama by Yoshio Oono Architect & Associates

また、内部と外部の境界線をよりいっそう無くすよう、1階への柱をもうけないように、屋根から2階の床を細いスチールの柱により

吊り上げている。その柱は2階の空間へリズムを与える役割として存在している。

House of Wakayama by Yoshio Oono Architect & Associates

外壁においては、大きな風景として存在している、空の色と補色関係のオレンジ色とした。

補色の色関係による、相乗効果を狙ったものである。

    Personally i don't understand the need of that canopy.
    I kind of like the interiors (well..there isn't much…anyway details and materials look nice), but the exterior looks fine from certain angles but wrong from others, same for the color of the canopy..

    Fabulous interior, with a nice balance of wood and drywall (plaster?) but can't say I care for the exterior concept.

  • jimdavidson

    just feels a little oppressive looking at these images…

    I agree about the canopy, I don't see it integrating programmatically, in form or aesthetic to the overall structure. It has a tacked on quality that can be a certain design pitfall.

    personally i'm intrigued by this, and I think the omitted context might give a clue to the idea behind the canopy. My guess is they have privacy concerns, with their young family, but it's too hard to tell since most of the images focus on the structure and not what's around it.

    I also like the idea of the raised bed, makes it look like a tent.
