Hansha Reflection House is one of the most recent projects of Studio SKLIM, a based studio both in Singapore and Japan founded by Kevin Lim.
Located in Nagoya, Japan, at the entrance of Misakimizube Koen, one of the picturesque parks, this 124 m² two-storey house was thought and designed within the environment.
With a beveled cantilever which contains the living room and an entrance beneath its first floor, it is a hybrid built with timber from a renewable source and shiny metal panels.
The studio created a structure considering day light/ventilation and viewpoint which evolves the building within the environment.
According to Studio SKLIM it was “set to address the ephemeral moments of the surroundings with structural ingenuity and material sublimity.”
The house has three areas that connecting the indoor spaces with outdoor ones: the front yard, the courtyard and the roof deck.
By Studio SKLIM:
“The front yard accommodates parking for three cars and becomes the entrance frame for the house. The connecting tissue to the park relies on the structurally evolved facade that visually associates with it and uses similar ground paving material.
The courtyard, an intimate private garden forms part of the environmental funnel to dissipate hot air during summer.
This space further anchors the master bedroom, 1-tatami introspective room, and double volume library.
The roof deck, the pinnacle of the house further heighten one’s sense of place with its surroundings and provides the perfect viewing platform for both Hanami (Sakura) and Hanabi (Fireworks) festivals.”
