Court House in Nagoya Article from Takeshi Hosaka Architects
The site is to the west to approximately 1 kilometer from Nagoya-jo Castle. Nagoya is is located in between Tokyo and Osaka. The summer of Nagoya is very hot. In the case of the heavy rain, water becomes the altitude of 50 centimeters from a road.
I designed the house for a couple and three children. I assumed it the one-storied house of the house with an inner court which surrounded a courtyard. I planned it by letting you roughen the line of the roof facing the courtyard to mix with Skyline of an apartment and the house built in the neighborhood. I mix wealthily near indoor and an outdoor border. This roof cuts summer direct rays of the sun.
The couple brings up vegetables in a field. The child play outside. Field life, garden life mix with everyday life. I planned both the indoor and the outdoors to become the place of the life.
