From the architect. A site is a city area in Asahikawa-shi, Hokkaido, Japan.

When considering the house built on the heavy snowfall background of the arctic cold which will be midwinter-20 ℃, we paid our attention to "snow" and a "roof."

Although the proposal with various roof forms of a snowy country residence is made, generally, only equipment and cost are considered and it is hardly related to the "space" in which people live.

Then, we proposed the house of the roof displeased extremely.

By considering it as a 60-degree steep slope roof, various snow damage and snowy load are mitigable only with the natural snow coverage to the ground.

The form produced as the result makes comfortable interior space. And I thought that a building continues being built in the figure carried out valiantly without being clothed in snowy clothes.
