Japanese architectural firm Takuro Yamamoto Architects has developed F-White.

Finished in 2009, this one,313 square foot contemporary house in Kashiwa, Japan, is targeted close to a huge rectangular courtyard.


F-White by Takuro Yamamoto Architects:

“F-WHITE is an independent a single-storied residence with a courtyard for a single household. As this website could not be subdivided into the regular dimension for regular residence but 1.5 occasions greater with narrow entrance, it had been unpopular and utilised as a parking lot for 30 years. The request from the consumer household was building a new house with sense of loved ones unity and spaciousness on this location.

In purchase to make an powerful use of this more substantial web site with limited price range, we made the decision to create the 1-story residence with massive foot print and lower height, and find courtyard which can be a personal outside area in the center of this site in which lovely sky can be witnessed from. But if we had located it in the center, it would have divided this home into 2 spaces.

Our reply for these conditions was allocating the rectangular courtyard at an unusual oblique angle to outer walls rather than a appropriate angle. Due to the fact by locating like that, spaces all around the courtyard can have enough location to remain, and be chained every single other at their corners without having aisle. This arrangement strengthens the relation among spaces, and produces unified feeling of the home. This solution also gives feeling of spaciousness when you are within of the residence, because this oblique angle can make the courtyard look like a box which took place to be thrown out on 1 very big inner room.

And in spite of sense of unity and spaciousness, the space all around the courtyard is not just a big absent room but specialized to each perform with numerous amounts of privacy. You can locate new and different scenes anytime you flip the corners all around the courtyard, even though the plan itself is quite easy. As described over, amazing style of F-WHITE is a clever answer for the uniqueness of the consumer, the internet site, and the courtyard fashion.”
