備後本庄の家 House of Bingohonjo

This house, built in a quiet residential area relatively close to the center of Fukuyama City, is designed to maximize the functional characteristics of a building standing in the city by placing an atrium in the center of the building and planning it to become an effective natural air conditioning system for lighting and ventilation.

The atrium is surrounded by living spaces and public spaces, and the exterior design has a sense of rhythm and dynamism by placing the openings in a well-balanced manner on the box-shaped concrete box.
