Yamate Residential House

They studied the angles of the summer and winter sunrises entering the site, and designed a floor plan that captures the sunrise throughout the year. The walls were glazed to create a sunrise-filled living space. Then, to protect the living space from the summer sun and rain, they planned an independent large roof. The roof is not an enclosed space, but an open space where wind and consciousness can pass through. They hope that with the construction of this building, the residents will feel more light and wind than ever before, and that their daily life will be better.

Tatsuhiro Nishimoto

After graduating from high school, he became a professional soccer player in Japan at the age of 18, but he became interested in architecture halfway through and studied architecture at a vocational school. He then studied architectural design at various companies and opened an architectural design office in his hometown. Running an architectural firm in the countryside was tough, and he thought about giving up many times, but a stay at the Jetwing Lighthouse in Sri Lanka, which he visited for his studies, gave him courage again. The architecture was designed by Sri Lankan architect Geoffrey Bawa. He was inspired by this space and is still working hard to design better spaces.
