house-T | tsukano architect office
This scheme has been planned for the downtown in Miyazaki, located in Southern Japan. The road in front is so busy and noisy, and there are tall buildings for residence at the south.
Considering all these factors, I came up with a brilliant idea to harmonize with the circumstances having a piece of white plate wrap the whole home space.
With the white plate, ‘house-T’ can get separated from outer crowdedness, while sun light is allowed to come into the courtyard, which makes inner space warm and brighter.
