Situated at the entrance of Misakisuihen Park, the Hansha Reflection House is a two-storey detached residence with courtyard and roof deck overlooking the the picturesque lakeview and Sakura trees.
Using timber from a renewable source, coupled with building technology that utilised a hybrid of traditional mortise and tenon joint system with steel bracketing, this house is an elegant inspiration from bridge construction and book shelf bracketing.
A three car parking under the 3.2 m wooden cantilever, an intimate private garden forms part of the environmental funnel to dissipate hot air during summer, and the roof deck provides the perfect viewing platform for both Hanami and fireworks.
Inspiration from architect:
The idea of “Reflection” was multifarious and became a series of unfolded meanings; exterior reflection of surrounding, interior reflection of surroundings, introspective reflection spaces and reflection of the house structure.
