Modern Japanese House with Natural Energy Source 

The modern Japanese house design by Hiroshi Sambuichi dedicated for a couple and their three children. It’s a contemporary house with green technology combined the minimalism and natural energy sources, it has a good design is first and foremost all about getting the balance between the building and the earth, right.

Description from the architect:

Base Valley looks perfectly natural among its surroundings. “A close examination on how changing wind directions and intensities in daylight influences the site, enables me to understand what kind of architecture is really needed on each location”, explains Sambuichi, when asked about the starting point of his design, which led to the transformation of the site into the family’s 100-m2 permanent base, where from they enjoy the beauty of the adjacent river and mountains.

Base Valley both protects its inhabitants from the challenging weather conditions, and also respects and makes the most out of the local climate. To make the best use of the wind blowing through the valley the architect decided on a 2,260 m wide cut, a wind street, slicing the entire building volume in north-south direction; this allows the air to flow through the interior. Next, he nestled four bedrooms and a sunroom in the ground, utilizing the earth’s warmth to regulate the indoor temperature. The scheme completes with a living area, dining room and kitchen on the ground level, which is topped off with a slanted glazed roof that follows the slope of the mountain.
