Planning and construction of a residence in Japan close to the historic sanctuary in Hyogo close to Kobe. Iron and wood for the DNA of the construction with stark lines on the exterior, in contrast with the warmth and dynamism of the interiors. Two level spaces conceived as internal container, the floor connected via a spiral staircase and a design respectful to the environment: a green roof, rainwater harvesting and waste treatment systems.
