Modern house in Japan with an open floor plan and spacious rooms
This modern House in japan was made by Airhouse Design Office Designed in 2012 for a customer from Yoro District, Gufu. The designers tried to maximize the feeling of unity in the open plan living area by abandoning all room dividers and intrusive pillars. The customer wanted a living space where the presence of the family could always be felt. A large kitchen was planned to meet the needs of the couple.

The kitchen is intended as the focal point for the entire living space, which has been combined with areas for various other activities and functions. A box-shaped volume was built in this spacious single room. Inside there is the parents’ bedroom with bathroom and an attic bedroom for the children.

To minimize heat loss within this large space, a layer of 100mm urethane foam was added to the walls, floors and ceilings, while a thermal power station was installed in the living room to heat water and provide underfloor heating. All openings have been designed using the existing sliding windows and doors, while the panes of glass are double-glazed to improve insulation.
