This house is located on a hill overlooking the Pacific Ocean. In order to enjoy unobstructed sea views, the architects placed a 21 meter x 8 meter 2-story building volume on the sea side of the site and placed it parallel to the coastline. Especially on the 2nd floor with a nice view the private area such as living, dining and bedroom.

A steel frame with an equal span of 3.6m will bear the seismic force on the central street via pillars. This enabled us to create a 50mm x 75mm flat bar equivalent to the aluminum sash frame on the second floor ocean side panoramic window part.

In order to ensure permeability and heat insulation performance, a pair of glass with an air layer of 12 mm is adopted at the opening. The roof uses 100 mm of insulation, and the outer wall uses 40 mm of insulation, ensuring insulation performance equivalent to energy saving grade 4. In consideration of the regional characteristics with a high clear-sky rate, we have set a weir with a 1.8 m diameter to adjust solar radiation especially in summer.
