Numabukuro Apartment ProjectBack to Projects list
This apartment sits in the suburban ‘half-urban/half-country’ area of Tokyo.
By specially choosing a little larger 120mm square posts at 1m intervals for the main structure and designing to allow higher specs of heat insulation/sound proof, we succeeded to achieve the grade-4 energy-conservation standards of next generation for this house. While sorting the size of the space, the interior layout and essential facilities, the design of the house naturally converged with the relaxing character to match to the mood of the town. We hope each 3 tenant be home everyday as his/her own home to relax and unwind.
