The intricate traditional Japanese structure of Hirari (when the entrance of the building runs parallel to the roof’s ridge) is experimented within the two-family dwelling of ‘A House in Omiya.’ Japanese atelier company Dai Nagasaka/Mega developed this home that features an exposed wooden ceiling peaking into the inner corner of its makeup.
A sheltered entryway is accommodated from the faceted elevation where a piece of transparency balances out the solid visage of the exterior with its continuous strip of glazing wrapped around the surface.
The inside of this home focuses on the ceiling which is emphasized from the sloping wooden beams in the southwest corner of the house. Privacy from the communal area is provided from the small loft located on the top floor. Linear windows brings in views of the park nearby inviting the outside environment into the realms of the living area.
