Kyodo House in Tokyo, Inspired by Rain

Yuichi Kodai and Lee Yoshitaka of Sandwich created Kyodo House with sustainability in mind. Green design is reflected in the layout and in material choices. The angular arrangement of stacked box volumes, clad in wood offcuts that would otherwise go to waste contains an adventurous home complete with a three story rope swing.

A house made from recycled wood, with a facade inspired by rain, ”natural aircondition”, a climbing rope going through all three stories, and bedrooms that switch place along with the seasons.

Japanese design firm Sandwich seems to have had a lot of fun in making this house, and it is sustainable in everything from materials to energy solutions. The tea room up in the three story tower acts like a chimney to encourage air to flow up through the space. The family sleeps in the basement during the summers, and on the first or second floor during the colder seasons, as warm air rises upwards. Almost all wood used to build the house was reclaimed, and most furniture are second hand or recycled.
