LocationKyoto-city, Kyoto, Japan
Architect in ChargeDai Nagasaka
Design TeamDai Nagasaka, Ikue Tanaka (former staff)
Site Area245 sqm
The site size is 40m×(11m/1.7m).
This shape is almost right triangle.
Both the road and the site is steep slope.
In addition, this site is regulated as a scenic area.
Though, being on the side of mountain, this landscape holds a possibility for house to have a dynamic view of Kyoto city.
In order to make the plan possible, I took decent research about the space and the type of structure before purchasing the land.
This house has the two-storied gable timber structure on a steel stage lifted with steel pickets.
Having different levels of LDK and wood deck on the second floor, a family of three lives in this house.
