This three-storey house is located at the corner of the site in the Tokyo residential area, facing a relatively busy street where busses go along day and night. m House is a 2012 residential project by Jun Aoki & Associates, designed with seven terraces to secure openness and sufficient ventilation.
The facade of this house resembles an enclosed box surrounded by frames of reinforced concrete while the box’s outer frame is designed with exterior thermal insulation of 40mm Expanded Poly-Styrene where hybrid plaster is splayed.
The plan for this project consists of seven terraces along the house’s exterior wall. These terraces are designed to connect two rooms of the house, securing openness and sufficient ventilation.
There are seven terraces built in this house.
On the ground level: one is adjacent to the entrance
On the second floor: one is to a bedroom and a washroom, one to a bathroom and a closet, and one to a writing room and a bedroom
On the third floor: a triangular terrace at the 90 degrees corner facing a living room and the last one is adjacent to a living room and a kitchen.
These terraces are designed in different sizes, adjusted to the since of the room or area where they are placed.
