うるま・赤野の家 House of Uruma Akano

This is a general housing project in Uruma City, Okinawa. Considering the local climate of Okinawa, a white wall, which was taken out from the building, surrounds the perimeter of the living space, which is based on a RC structure. This design gives the impression that the building is floating.

Gutters, electric meters, etc., which obstruct the design, were placed inside the floating wall to enhance the design.

A dog run runs beyond the openings that can be entered and exited, creating a small terrace space.

The living room side, where the view can be enjoyed, has a large opening to cut through the nature of Uruma like a painting.
