Put a Visit to the Ogaki House in Japan on Your Bucket List!

Purchasing a “Dream House” is one of life's biggest accomplishments that top nearly everyone’s bucket list. Whether you choose a simplified urban loft or an expansive home with a colored fence, most of us hope to find a home that feels like it was made exclusively for our family. Conversely, searching for your dream house comes with more diverse deliberation than any other purchase.

Since you will likely be aspiring to stay on the property you select looking into the future, you will want to seek for a property that will fill the needs of you and your family. Do not be afraid to be meticulous, it is a natural feeling and hold out until you finally find a home that suits your taste. How can you ever tell that you have found your perfect place? Eventually, you’ll just know. A gut feeling of contentment will be felt when you know it is the right one.

In order to picture out what I am trying to refer to, take a look at this triangular house found in Gifu, Japan designed by Katsutoshi Sasaki + Associates called Ogaki House. All the windows and doors of the interior spaces pointed towards a mini courtyard at the center of the residence. The figure of the house is dictated by the strong winds in the area as the triangle shape of the building reduces loads that are compulsory on the construction. The open central space allows natural ventilation that is vital during the summer months.

In cold winter seasons, the strong west wind blows in this area. So it is the plan of restraining the load of the building by expanding its roof up close to the ground soil and fending off cold winds at the roof.
