House at Hanegi Park

 

House at Hanegi Park by Shigeru Ban Architects

The main feature of the home is the dual-aspect living space on the top floor. On the front side, the home appears to have a semi-arched roof vault, but the ceiling gradually transitions to a flat roofline on the rear aspect.

The house backs onto Hanegi Park. The large glazed french doors can be completely opened. The view of the wooded parkland beyond is framed by the geometric lines, creating a lively and dynamic backdrop to daily life in the home.
