House in Maihama by Yoshitaka Arita

There’s a lot of beautiful details here ! House in Maihama by Yoshitaka Arita.

The old house had moisture and security (i.e. burglary) issues before it was replaced by this new house. There was also another problem the young couple wanted to solve when they decided to rebuild a new one on the same site – reducing the vibrations from the Metropolitan Expressway running near by. To build their dream home, the client couple hired Yoshitaka Arita, a Tokyo-based architect who had studied architecture both in Japan and the UK. The architect focused on three things – raise, solidify and lower the gravity center. To achieve these three goals, all three construction methods common in Japan were applied. Reinforced concrete and steel frame were used for the first level. The second level, which is the family’s living quarters, was built of wood frame construction.

Found at what we do is secret.
