House in Marugame

wood frame 2F | Kagawa

The House in Marugame is a residential project in Marugame City, Kagawa Prefecture. The project is planned for a couple, their three daughters, and two dogs.

The client requested a home that is not excessively large, with the anticipation that the daughters would become independent in the near future. With this in mind, the living room and kitchen are centrally planned, with few barriers.

Prior to the design process, the mother expressed her wish for the shortest, simplest lines of flow for her household chores, and spatial relationships which facilitate communication.

The father asked for the bedroom to be close to the living room, so that if he felt extreme fatigue, he would have ease of access to both rooms.

We observed a sense of warmth and happiness in the family.
We aimed to envelop that warmth and happiness in a charming, compact single volume.

The living room, dining room, and kitchen are centralized on the first floor, among bedrooms and bathrooms, with minimized distances between each programmatic function.

The daughter’s rooms on the second floor face the center, linked to the first floor via open vertical space.
The open ceiling allows communication between residents occupying the first floor and second floor.

While the project might even appear to be a single-story house, when viewed from afar, the house responds to its context and natural environment, harmonizing with the landscape and mountains.

建築はそれ自身の成り立ちとは無関係に
完成と同時にその周囲の人々や街並み、環境にまで大きく影響を与える存在です。
そして大切に使われているか否かその場所に馴染んでいるか否かに関わらず
何十年もその土地に存在し続けます。

デザインだけでなく、機能だけでもない、建築に関わる様々な物事にこだわり続け
何十年も人々に愛され、人々を守り、色褪せない建築
それが私たちの求める建築のあり方です。

Once created, architecture has significant influence on townscape,
surrounding people as well as the environment, regardless of its background.
It will remain on that ground for decades
whether it blends into the location or not, or if it’s treasured.

No just design or capabilities, but focus on various architectural essence.
Timeless longevity endeared for years, and guarding people’s lives…
this is the concept we pursue.
