So this house has only small openings and insulation performance up. And a buffer zone make a moderate the relationship with the outside world. The exterior walls use pine from Hokkaido. And also structure timbers use from a local material. I took the wooden structure because of good thermal conductivity.

Ground Floor Plan
Ground Floor Plan

Plan surrounds the two halls (living dining/master bedroom) and washing room by small rooms , which form a buffer zone. Washing room has top light and it introduce the light to the entire of house. And also curtain make diffuse light. By creating a buffer zone, it makes improving in thermal environment, and also can connect on human psychology and the surrounding environment. Natural environment is a great presence. But sometimes it sudden change to a stern expression. This is the architecture that is thinking the relationship between the natural environment and the indoor environment continues to change daily.
