House with Non-standard Windows by Suppose Design Office

Modern Home

This family house is located in Jigozen, Japan. Created with a lot of imagination by Japanese architects Suppose Design Office, the home is built by the sea. Along with the exhilarating feeling of being by the sea comes the longstanding idea that this spot is prone to damage from natural disasters, especially during Typhoon season.

If we look at the past , there are many examples of damage caused by nature, such as windstorms or flooding. Therefore, it becomes necessary to build a house where you can feel relaxed while also taking into consideration these natural disasters from the very start of planning.

“The Line between Interior and Exterior”

In this building, the interior and exterior flow together with the existence of what you could call a half-outdoor space. This space creates a gradation from inside to outside. With a space which is at the same time like a terrace, a veranda, an inside room, and the outdoors, items which normally would be found inside, such as books and paintings, a study or a bath, can actively participate in this middle-ground between interior and exterior. This space fulfills the role of connecting the outside to the inside. In addition, it serves as a buffer to the various natural-phenomena found in the outdoors. It solves the seemingly contrary problems of “protection” and “openness” at the same time.
