House in Sendai, "Okina-ki"

This is a house like "Okina-ki" (a big tree), in Sendai City, Miyagi, Japan, for a family, 2 young parents and 2 kids.

This house, allocated at the center of small site, has a four-quadrant plan with 3.6m grid. A cross wall at center changes its size gradually, from a small size at the bottom floor to a large size at the top floor. It creates a connection at the public area like dining and living space. At the same time, it creates privacy at the private area like a bedroom.

Floors are allocated at various height around the cross wall, which gives a various enjoyable view of the garden around the house. Additionally, each room is connected at the same time with four other rooms in this house and family can feel each other any time.

This is a translation of a sense of primitive feeling, enjoying and relaxing under a big tree into a residential space.
