Today we have a post about 2 wonderful timber homes located in Japan. The first would be a research house is a forest area and the other is a wonderful small vacation wooden home with minimalist style. The purpose of the 2 are completely different and the design approach were different too. So, lets see what the Japanese architects there did to make the houses they built comfortable and fascinating to look at.
This cottage is located in the mountain in Nagano and was designed by architect Shin Ohori from the Japanese architecture firm named General Design Co. The main function is for research dwelling so the mountain cottage is expected to naturally degrade back into soils after its service times. The materials used are mostly of local pine wood for that purpose along with the unique bright yellow tents originally from the North Face. As a Mountain Research which is also the name for the cottage, this building is equipped with standard kitchen, bathroom, storage and another important area for a mountain cottage, an outdoor living space and patio.

This timber house is quiet small, since the function is just for a weekend house, the interior is clean, so clean it does have only a few plastic chairs. This house is made mostly of timber for cladding and concrete for most supporting structures. The outdoor area has ample wooden deck and is raised above the ground floor. The ground floor features black floor and beam-less construction for the interior. The ceiling is made with wooden exposed frames and this house also features small attic space.
The kitchen is made in a small enclosed space which looks like a nook. The design is minimalist and in light grey color similar to the concrete wall’s color. There’ the attic can be accessed by using the minimalist wooden stair with black metal balustrade. The attic space is quite small and features wooden floor with a long, narrow wooden bench. This house only has basic live supporting features like a very small kitchen and others like a small vase, a tea pot, a few light bulbs, and… I don’t know, I don’t see anything on the pictures, or, do you? Design by Ikuyo Nakama.
