About the project:
Tanoura’s weekend house is located on the island of Oshima, in the southwest of Japan. I designed a weekend house overlooking the beautiful sea for the client, who runs his own landscape company. In modern society internet connectivity through our smartphones is an ever-present fact of life. Although very convenient, it’s hard to create an environment where we aren’t interrupted.
At the weekend house, the client could escape the hustle and bustle of his busy life, which provided much needed space and time to refresh his mind. The ground floor of this building is made of RC and the first floor is made of wood. The house features a 3.2 m protruding balcony and deep eaves of 1.35 m with a gable roof.
