House with Gardens and Roofs

Located in Hamamatsu, a city on the southern coast of Central Japan, the house sits next to an existing house built in 1983. The client decided to build a new house, but to keep their old house as an extra space for their children and grandchildren to stay. Our aim was to create a whole, old and new altogether, as well as to make the most of the outdoor space of the entire site.
Four new volumes are positioned with gardens and terraces in between. The group of roofs relate to that of the existing house, creating a sense of continuation between old and new. The roof is lifted up from the beams, making the indoor somewhat like covered outdoor space.
