N12-house “Garage House With A Migratory Terrace” is a plan at a villa site located in the scenic hills. The environment is surrounded by rich nature and the south side is a gentle slope with a good view. As a second house, it was proposed an extraordinary space where the owner can spend time relax on holidays with his family and guests. For owner who likes cars, the garage has been placed widely on the ground floor, and all private rooms and kitchen and dining room are planned on the second floor with a fantastic view. The terrace balcony where you can explore 3 sides of the building circulately . By bringing the overall volume to the second floor, it is succeeded in realizing a beautifully balanced façade, by organizing the first floor as compact as possible and by planning a spacious terrace balcony and large overhanging eaves on the second floor. By planning a wide opening to the north and the south of a living room on the 2nd floor, you can feel breath of fresh nature, such as the sky, surrounding trees. By stretching the boards of red cedar on the sloping ceiling, they are continous with the sloping eaves of the terrace balcony, it is succeeded in producing an open space toward the south. Illuminating by light at night, the sloped eaves of the terrace balcony will be a fantastic façade; even though it is a wooden construction method, it produces the beauty of a form that does not seem like a wooden construction at first glance. We hope that the N12-house will be an oasis for the owners and visitors to forget the bustle of the busy life and to enjoy moments of physical and mental relaxation.
