House in Kirishima

In order to avoid the harsh sunshine and typhoons of the tropics, a large wooden roof was erected and supported by steel eaves girders, reinforced concrete pillars, hip walls, and foundations. The reinforced concrete frame is externally insulated, and wall air conditioners and under-floor air conditioners efficiently circulate cold and warm air and store heat in the frame to provide a stable thermal environment throughout the year.
