When in our country, we say that a House is a greenhouse do so disparagingly, as indicating that gets too much sun and very hot in summer. But clear, so for this climate is madness, for another may be the solution, or at least thus I Shimado, of Tato Architects, interpreted it to build this House as a series of small greenhouses.
The House in question is located in Yamasaki, a region of Japan that 90% of the time the sky is completely overcast. Place farms use the raisers to take full advantage the little light that arrives, and in them the architect was inspired to design this so unconventional home.
The program is the usual: three bedrooms, lounge, dining room, kitchen, a bathroom and a toilet, only this time is has decided to distribute a somewhat peculiar way, since although most of the rooms are on the ground floor, buried to preserve heat, others are located in the small greenhouse cabins that emerge.
Despite being half-buried, the entrance level is a very bright place, thanks not only to the abundant windows, but to the zenith and diffused light which provide the greenhouses, which act as a large skylights thanks to be constructed with sheets of polycarbonate, a translucent material.
In this plant, we find a large lounge, a dining area and kitchen, all in a single continuous space and broken, allowing recognize each area and create some independence but without breaking the flow. There are two bedrooms, a small bathroom and a closet.
On the top floor is the master bathroom, a small work area, and another room, as well as a large outdoor terrace which can be accessed from any of these rooms. The terrace is quite nice, as a small plaza with benches that sitting down to read and enjoy some ray of sunshine that strain among the clouds.
So far all very interesting, but the innovative proposal of the architect has some small sticks. The biggest problem is that there are three cabins in the upper floor, are necessary three staircases up – if not would have to spend outside – what is mortgage plenty of movement on both floors.
To minimize this small inconvenience, it was decided by steep stairs, to the extent that two of the three (that go up to the office and to the other room) are ladders, while the which leads to the large bathroom on the upper floor, although more comfortable, is still extremely vertical.
It is true that the bathroom located in one of the greenhouses is gorgeous; lots of light, site for a separate basins area, shower, bathtub and up to what looks like a sauna, but It is a little strange to have to go up a floor to shower or wash your face, not to mention that it is more strange if it should be that the rest of the bathroom and the toilet are on different floors, since setting me on the planes, there seems to be one in the master bathroom.
However, while the functionality is not the cornerstone of this House, I think that it has been a magnificent space to live in space, Welcoming and luminous, something that given the location it seems laudable, as already seen in the images that the sun shines by its absence.
Perhaps not everyone would be willing to living in a home greenhouse, as to who would not live in one with large windows, but I sincerely believe that the architect has solved ingeniously all the challenges raised by the location, the program and the desires of the customer.
