The design of the house HIM is the perfect marriage of the traditional Japanese craftsmanship and cutting edge environmental analysis. In contrast to the closed look from the outside, inside spaces are all connected through the entrance void where family use as a multi functional space for reading, drawing and studying. Faceted geometry of the envelope performs to capture prevailing wind through the house as well as naturally ventilate hot air in summer.
Unique timber joinery of the roof is all hand- cut by the craftsman and series of mock-ups are made on site to assure the quality.
