Located in Japan, Horizon Roof House by Shinichi Ogawa & Associates | The Hardt
Located in Japan, Horizon Roof House by Shinichi Ogawa & Associates located in the old town, being surrounded by Japanese style houses, this one story house, made of reinforced concrete displays a strong horizontality, with a clear composition of a long low lying horizontal roof, with vertical supporting walls. The interior is composed of 2 types of spaces: the small closed rooms line the North side, while the main spaces are placed to the South, opening to the long courtyard. A semitransparent wall of glass separates the courtyard from the street; bringing in light while masking views in from passers-by. A homogeneous, floor surface is carried throughout the house, giving a feeling of continuation and uniting the spaces both inside and out. Carefully designed details, such as a custom-made glass TV wall, an outdoor counter to prepare fishes, walk-in closet, and bespoke kitchen, provide a simple yet convenient residential space.
