For Jun Igarashi Architects latest residence, the Japanese firm designed a light yet dynamic house nestled east of Hokkaido. Fit for a family of four, the two story 150 square meter house bundles the necessities into zones located in the front of the residence, so the remaining floor area becomes a flexible and open living space. Within this broader space, long layered slices of the floor plan define different programmatic elements, such as the sun room and dining room, visually separating the spaces. With these slices, the residence becomes a linear compilation that is literally layered from one end to the other.
