愛媛・新居浜プロジェクト Ehime Niihama Project

Niihama City, Ehime Prefecture, is located almost in the center of the Seto Inland Sea side of the country and is blessed with convenient access to transportation, with the Akaishi Mountains to the south and the Seto Inland Sea to the north. A new private housing project is underway here.

The site is a fairly large site of over 900 m2 and faces a road on the south side. The road has a lot of traffic, so privacy was a major consideration in the planning process.
In order to ensure privacy, the house is designed as a courthouse with a courtyard.
The courtyard is not affected by the surrounding environment, and the aim is to create an open space and to secure lighting and ventilation.

The client requested a modern and stately image for the interior design.
We created a space with cedar formwork concrete and solid wood, and incorporated a courthouse style to block out the surrounding environment, so that the client can always feel the greenery.

The main façade is composed of a single large roof over the two volumes (garage and house) surrounding the courtyard.
The main façade is designed to create a sense of unity and massiveness.
