I built my house approximately 30 years ago. Back then, the house was surrounded by rice fields and hills. An abundance of nature allowed even fireflies to occasionally wander in.
I asked architect Hiroshi Hara to design the house. Using the natural slope of the lot, the AWAZU HOUSE became the young architect's first work in his "Reflection House" Series.
Plane surfaces are predominantly symmetric and the walls on the right and left sides are "reflective" as if they are mirror imaged. This house maintains the same spirit as Hara's most recent design of Kyoto Station.
