|CONCEPT

The site is located at a heavy snow area of Niigata Prefecture. A renovation of a second floor of a two-story wooden house. By ripping off the ceiling finish, we exposed the wooden structure. Depending on the rooms below the structure, glass is filled to make the separation between the rooms. The walls, roof and the openings are augmented with insulation to further make the space comfortable.
