S-HOUSE, Tsukuba

On June 15th 2014 finally the construction contract was signed for the construction of S-House in Tsukuba. A private residence of about 84 sqm, designed on a square footprint. Its most obvious features are the four “ears”, large triangle shapes sticking outof the roof and extending from windows shifted upwards to become high side lights. This brings in natural light deeper into the house, stricking and bouncing off the walls and allows views of the sky. The roof will be white in FRP and the walls in wood (yaki-sugi) with between the slats colored slats to add texture to the walls.
