Outline

This is a big-roof house project for a young couple and a little girl in Aamami Island, Kagoshima. It is a house that has the same size as the building area of the room and has a semi-outdoor space under the big roof that reaches the ground. Rather than designing closed house against to intense natural environmental conditions such as typhoons, squalls, salt damage, constant winds, and strong solar radiation, it is not possible to create a rich environment rooted in the area more by opening and connecting to the outside. Under the big roof becomes a comfortable external space where the wind passing through all the time. it's also functions as " community space" welcome to neighbors and friends.
