Eaves House

Eaves House, Hakone, 2009

Eaves House
A vacation home built in the resort area of Hakone. The site is located in the special area regulated under the Natural Parks Law, and has strict regulations on the ratio of green coverage and roof pitch. We built a hipped roof that covered the sight within the maximum regulation allowed, and created an exterior space under the eaves that wouldn’t be affected by the weather in the mountains. The eaves acted as an umbrella, a parasol, a reflex board that carried the sunlight from the South, and also as a frame of the beautiful view of Mount Fujiyama. By acquiring enough wall quantity with the irregularity of the wall surfaces, and the eaves, we have succeeded in creating a new layer that is completely separate from the outside.
