Outline

Pettanco house is located in Matsumoto, Nagano, deep in the region referred to as the Japanese Alps. This site faces a river to (the south) and two roads (one on the west and one on the north side). Since the Edo period the town of Matsumoto is known for the wood craftsmen. The client is also a wood craftsman, In addition to the spaces of the house his special request was a gallery space to show his works. All to be achieved within the constraints of an efficient budget, so we kept a low height and simple shape in mind. Natural light and air come in from the roof dormer.
