This house is designed with the consideration of relationship between the occupants of the house and their environment. Located in front of the spacious rice fields, this Nigata house consists of a ground floor and three huts above it.
The ground floor is an open space for time enjoying with the friends. Here, the direction of the activity is parallel to the scenery so they realize of the scenery.
The three huts are the private spaces with differentiation of material finishing and how the view is cutted of. Eventhough, each hut has four windows in four directions to maximize the light and wind receiving effectively.
The western hut is functioned as bedroom that is finished in wood with suitable interior for sleeping ambiance. The central hut, finished in metal and you can see a big picture of the scenery as it cut to emphasize it. While in the eastern hut, finished in mirror and paint with strong gloss. However it will reflect the scenery on the surface, that means bring the exterior as the interior finishing. This is a smart idea from the Daigo Ishii + Future-scape Architects, as the architects of this friendly house.
