U2 by Kiriko Design Office
U2 Residence is an inspiring two-story home located in Japan, designed in 2021 by Kiriko Design Office.
What was asked for the building was to make for both of construction company operating himself and residential area which is also possible to rent for future.
Therefore without special materials and methods, I did my best to use local materials and craftsmen who can use their technique as much as possible.
For residential area, panorama style window is accepted to get maximum view to see landscape surrounding residential area over the roof.
By setting bearing walls in a good balance in the windows with a checkered pattern, it is realized to higher openness and quake-proof are realized to establish.
If we can seamlessly incorporate a good environment into our daily lives, we will be able to create a building that can adapt to the ever-changing environment and lifestyle without stress.
