The site is located on the huge countryside outskirts of Asahikawa. Asahikawa, summer is more than 30 degrees, and winter become -30 degrees. Here is the region that is very big difference in the temperature. So this house have only small openings and insulation performance up. And a buffer zone make a moderate the relationship with the outside world . The exterior walls use pine from Hokkaido. And also structure timbers use from a local material . I took the wooden structure because of good thermal conductivity.

Plan is surround the two hall(living dining/master bedroom) and washing room by small rooms , which form a buffer zone. Washing room has top light and it introduce the light to the entire of house. And also curtain make diffuse light.

By creating a buffer zone, it makes improving in thermal environment, and also can connect on human psychology and the surrounding environment.

Natural environment is a great presence. But sometimes it sudden change to a stern expression. This is the architecture that is thinking the relationship between the natural environment and the indoor environment continues to change daily.
