福井県小浜市の若夫婦のための離れの住宅の設計。敷地の前後が空き地であったため2階に大きな窓をつくることで、水田、山並み、空を遠くまで望め、床面積以上に広がりのある空間となっている。天井が高い大きなリビングに小さな部屋が断面的に2つ併設したプランとし、小さな部屋と大きな部屋の関係性により小ぶりな家の中にも性格の異なる多様な場所をつくることを求めた。建物はガルバリウムで包み込み、黒い塊が空き地の中に静かに佇む様子が田園風景に馴染んでいる。

TOFU is an architecture and interior design unit, which is based in Osaka, Japan. We are proposing the design of housings, shops, gardens,sake breweries,renovation  in various locations.

This is small house for the young couple in Obama,Fukui,Japan. The construction area is 41.18 sqm, this house can be divided into much smaller homes even in Japan. We thought how to make a big bowl of life in a small site conditions. However, fortunately there is a vacant lot around the site. So, by creating a large window on the second floor, it is possible to see paddy fields,mountains,sky and feel to spread over a floor area. This plan has high ceilings and large living with cross sections of two small rooms. By the relationship between great room and small room,we created many different places  in the small house. As a result, the house has become a big inclined roof. By changing the positions, the house makes us various impression. We feel very large house which seen from the entrance, feel small house which seen from the vacant space. Around of this site are lined with manufacturer's houses common to Japan. So we wanted to make the house melted into the landscape with a little uncomfortable feelings.  The house is wrapped with galvalume,the black masses standing quietly in vacant lot are familiar with the countryside.
