Text description provided by the architects. This house is rebuilt of old sub house, standing beside main house, wrapped big Japanese garden in Tokyo downtown area. To rebuild it, as we needed to demolish the old house and Oya stone fence, we kept many materials, which can be used, once. Then we sliced old wooden columns and beams to use as ceiling finish. We also use Japanese “shoji” window as ceiling finish and Oya stone as gardening floor finish and fence again.

This house has simple dutch gable roof, which is Japanese traditional. Big triangle window is put in south high side to have sunlight between trees, so we can feel garden if we close all the curtains.

Clients are old couple but high ceiling space is planned to expand as grandson’s room. Then parents and 2 kids can live in this house in the future.

As the floor level, which is adjust to old main house, is quite high from the ground level, we make big eaves and hang the terrace from eaves, it looks like big bay window and garden stone is slide under this terrace to bring the garden closer to the house.
