Sagamine House

On the outskirts of Nagakute, Japan, Tomoaki Uno Architects has built the Sagamine House. The brutalist dwelling emerges from a verdant site in an old residential area with three boxy forms. Its two larger volumes house the main living areas and bedrooms while the middle unit connects the home and contains the kitchen and dining room. Internally, its concrete facade is left exposed on the interior creating a minimalist atmosphere. In contrast, the addition of white oak on the floors, cabinets, and stairs add warmth to the monolithic palette. The wood trim also surrounds east-facing windows, framing in the scenery like a painting.
