安佐南の家 House in Asaminami

This is a plan for a two-family house in the suburbs of Hiroshima City. The simple design of keeping the north side low and the south side high allows light to enter the northern part of the house while blocking the line of sight from the road on the south side, and the plan is to use the difference in height to exhaust warm air to the outdoors. The plan was to have the vessel itself act as a natural ventilation system without relying on machines. The house is a simple and functional expression of a form that is guided by a slight manipulation.
