House on Classical Elements

An off-grid wooden house built using traditional construction methods in Akiya Village, a project developed by Monochrome with architects to create a "next-generation house" using renewable energy from solar panels. The terrace, which ensures ventilation, is supported by wooden trusses, and no pillars are placed at the corners to allow for views. Japanese cedar was used for the exterior walls, cellulose fiber was used for insulation, and mois was used for the subflooring, which is a material that does not produce industrial waste and returns to the soil. In order to reduce the amount of concrete and to consider the environment in the soil, a high-floor independent foundation was used, and no rain gutters were installed at the eaves.
