Breathing Roof

Renovation of a 200-year-old thatched-roof minka (traditional Japanese house). The framework peculiar to thatched roofs was left as it was. By removing the thatch, laying reed screens, and filling them with wool insulation, we attempted to reinterpret the thatched roof in a modern way. A top light was installed on the ridge and a portion of the ceiling was covered with polycarbonate, allowing light to pour in. The height of the cypress plywood hip wall is 850mm.
