House in Yagi

Architect: Design Office

Location: Hiroshima, Japan

Year built: 2012

On a narrow site perpendicular to a small canal the ‘house in yagi’ by japanese practice suppose design office boasts an entirely concrete structure with a single storey living area supported above a double height atrium space. the in-situ cast envelope reveals the integrated columns and beams.
On the exterior as well as the interior ceiling, ordering the facade with a visually rational delineation of structural bays. the entry contains a tall  floor to ceiling height with compacted earthen ground that extends the exterior, emphasized further with the pristine smooth walls typical of the outer envelope of a building, and a single tree injects a sharp natural contrast with the immediate domestic landscape. a single thin staircase.
Leads to the second level where the living space’s are located. an elm floor and plywood partitions balance the coldness of the concrete, complimented by rather modest fixtures and furnishings. a sliding glass door at the entry to the second level serves as a thermal barrier while permitting the  passage of natural light from the large window that overlooks the river and small garden at the back of the lot.
