studio tawaraya has designed sorimachi house, a wooden family residence located in a calm residential area close to the center of yokohama city, japan. the project has been developed around three main themes, which include: the relationship with the exterior surroundings and the three roads that encompass the property; the three-dimensional awareness of the family’s whereabouts; and the feel of the warmness of trees without compromising the home’s fire resistance performance.studio tawaraya connects wooden 'sorimachi' house with its surroundings in japanall images by yosuke ohtake

 

 

in order to establish a relationship with the exterior surroundings, studio tawaraya has added two floor-to-ceiling openings on the corner of the two-story house. these openings include sliding doors on the ground level, and a large window on the upper floor, both of which help blend the boundaries between interior and exterior. additionally, the japanese architecture studio has carefully developed a connection with the three roads that surround the property. by not planning any solid boundaries, such as fences or half-walls, for the perimeter of the house, the architects have visually extended exterior space to include those three roads.studio tawaraya connects wooden 'sorimachi' house with its surroundings in japan
