House in Nango by Hearth Architects

House in Nango is a minimal residence located in Shiga, Japan, designed by Hearth Architects. This project is a detached house project planned on a site with different heights. In order to design the site separated by this height difference as integrally as possible, we planned to set up a garage under the site and a house on the site and connect them with one big roof. The large roof of 19m gently covers the entire site, connecting the inside and the outside in an integrated manner, creating an attractive three-dimensional space that takes advantage of the height difference. Such a three-dimensional space will create a comfortable home where the family can become one under one roof.
