府中の家 House in Fuchu

This two-story concrete house is a combination of a clinic and a two-family house.
The clinic and residential portion of the house are divided by a corridor, and the theme of the design was how to relate the existing garden to the newly constructed corridor.

The corridor is divided by a glass wall and is made of steel plates, so that visitors can walk along the corridor with a view of the tea ceremony room, tea ceremony garden, and warehouse.

In the residential area, a light garden was designed to ensure natural lighting and ventilation, and to allow the two families to live together on a common floor across the courtyard.
