Name: House in Hakusan
Designer: Fujiwarramuro Architects
Location: Ishikawa, Japan
House in Hakusan is a minimalist house located in Ishikawa, Japan, designed by Fujiwarramuro Architects. The clients for the home wanted split-level home with a flow that would allow the family to circulate throughout the house with ease. The clients were also concerned of excessive heat from sun exposure on the front of the site.
As a result, the architects decided to wide staircases through the building in the same direction as airflow. When the windows are opened, the family could enjoy the breeze while sitting and relaxing on the staircase. There is also a doma underneath the staircase that is used for storing bicycles and motorcycles.
