The site for this house is a comparatively large lot, long in the north-south direction. The south side fronts a road and has the following existing features: a gate that encloses a courtyard, a main house and a secondary long house, both around a hundred years old. On the north side there was a concrete house connected to the main house. Also there is an expansive back garden covered in wild grass. The project site was between the garden and the existing buildings, with original rice fields making this a humid location. For this reason, the new house is raised on columns, or pilotis, to gain good airflow through the internal spaces. The elevation of the house on pilotis gives an optimum location for natural ventilation. The raised volume operates as a wind tunnel ensuring the entrance of fresh air during the summer time.Save this picture!ModelSave this picture!© Hiroshi ItoThe site is large, with an existing main house and a secondary terrace house. Between the main house and the terrace house, many additions were made. The north side of the site was allocated for the new house, with the main house to be used as a guest house and the terrace house to be used as an office. The other buildings were demolished and access from the courtyard to the new house was maintained. Because there are rice fields, the humidity is high and so the new house was designed on the first floor, raised on columns, or pilotis. In so doing, the expansive back part of the site could still be viewed from the main house and the terrace house. Also, a visual and spatial sequence was created that included the front garden, courtyard, and back garden.Save this picture!SketchSave this picture!SketchDue to the unconventional shape of the house in the area, the selection of materials was faced as an opportunity to link the building to the local features. Burned wood panels has been traditionally used as finishing in many houses of these area, because of its durability and fire resistance.The dark timber, is applied in the building taking into account the main views where the new house can be seen surrounded by the existingSave this picture!© Hiroshi ItoProject gallerySee allShow lessThe House of Politics – AA Visiting School BrusselsWorkshopSHoP Breaks Ground on Mixed-Use Development in TijuanaArchitecture News Share Photographs:  Hiroshi Ito CopyHouses•Okayama, Japan Houses Japan Year:  “COPY” Save this picture!© Hiroshi Ito+ 12 Share Pilotis House / Furuichi and AssociatesSave this projectSavePilotis House / Furuichi and Associates ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/788145/pilotis-house-furuichi-and-associates Clipboard Structure: Pilotis House / Furuichi and Associates Photographs Architects: Furuichi and Associates Year Completion year of this architecture project Umezawa Structural Engineers lab ArchDaily “COPY” Projects 2005 CopyAbout this officeFuruichi and AssociatesOfficeFollowProductsSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOkayamaJapanPublished on May 26, 2016Cite: “Pilotis House / Furuichi and Associates” 26 May 2016.
