Snow Country Renovation
Asahi Village, Murakami City, Niigata Prefecture



Heavy snowfall area in Niigata prefecture. The 2nd floor of a wooden XNUMX-story building was renovated into a living space for a child household.
The ceiling was peeled off, revealing the wooden structure as it was.
The glass is carefully and vertically and horizontally fitted to the wooden frame to divide the room into rooms.
Walls, ceilings, openings and floors each have improved insulation performance and improved livability.
