Local Japanese architecture and design firm Naoi Architecture & Design has constructed a dwelling called the House with a Large Hipped Roof, for a four-member family located in Ibaraki, a suburban area in Japan.
The entire property occupies a floor area of 231 square meters and is inspired by mountainous forms and the co-existence of people and nature. The two-storey home has a distinctive shape thanks to the roof canopy located in the middle center of the home.
The interiors feature contemporary designs with wooden accents, white walls and steel structures. The first level of the home consists of the master bedroom, an ensuite bathroom and the dining area that has been fitted to surround the living room in the middle.
The lounge area allows for division via sliding doors; for private and public purposes, the upper level of the home is fitted with large window panels to allow natural daylight to flow in. The upper level also consists of a bedroom designed for the two children.
