This is a small residential house in Akita Prefecture.
The site is in the centre of Akita City where urban functions are situated. Despite its urban location, this is a special place as it is surrounded by car parks. Considering that the space is exposed to public eyes in all four directions, it is essential to sustain the elements of privacy, but at the same time, our aim is to drop frontality from its façade.
Complete renovation of a former summer house located on an island outside Gothenburg. Exterior cladding in tar coated plywood.
