This rehabilitation also includes seismic rehabilitation. With the help of Mr. Wakabayashi of Atami’s Seismic Specialist Wakabayashi Architects who also took care of Momonohachian, all the walls shown in red on the drawing became earthquake-resistant walls, with only 0.1 and 0.2 in the seismic coefficient X and Y directions. All of these buildings have been reborn as solid housing, clearing 1.0. In addition, it is essential to improve insulation performance to make the house livable. By adding a custom double glass sash to the outside of all thin glass doors, it will be triple glass from the inside as it is the original wooden glass sash, and floor heating for tatami will be introduced in addition to insulation under the floor As a result, high insulation performance was achieved at the cost of roller rolling. All floors are made of Daiken Japanese paper tatami mats except for the water area from the entrance, realizing gentle slipper-free feet. It is not a Japanese house where the winter is cold and the wind blows, and the windows are rattled and the windows are noisy. We asked Mr. Okamoto of Okamoto Design Office, who also took care of the actual design in Momomihachian in Atami.

Living / Dining / Kitchen

The space that became the LDK in the best place in the house was originally a 10-tatami and 8-tatami Japanese-style room with a corridor and closet equivalent to 6 tatami mats, with both sides surrounded by the same wide edge and corridor. We decided to remove the walls that separated the space darkly and finely, and also added an adjacent lavatory area to create a space with an open feeling of 85 square meters.
This large space was achieved by leaving the old wooden structure and fittings as they were and using a traditionally washed Yukimi shoji as a gentle barrier, it created a comfortable space that was not too wide but wide.
The golden color on the Juraku wall and Kibe and the blue on the kitchen tiles and fabrics create a vivid contrast.

from the well-established Nishikawa store in Nihonbashi. Traditional mosaic tiles in the back The folding screen on the background of the dining room was inspired by Tomita’s gold leaf paper, a national treasure in Atami, “Iron Fujihana Buncha-tsubo” by Hitoshi Nonomura. The dining table was delivered by Mr. Kume, a forest cypress thinner from Shizuoka.
The folding screen is a folding door, and when you open it, the kitchen appears. Above all, the cypress counter is 3.6 meters wide, 1.1 meters deep, and 55 mm thick. All of the single cypress boards here are from Kume Kume. Luckily, they had wonderful wood that was naturally dried for three years. Both the knots unique to thinned wood and the small bark left behind dare to create a relaxed atmosphere here. Kitchen cabinets are handmade by carpenters and joinery shops. The grain of the cedar of the facing material creates a contrast with the wild grain of the counter. The metal fittings are of the kitchen, each with a hexagonal shape like a kiln, which is made by Sugiura Ceramics of Tajimi.
The lighting was originally produced by an iron sculptor, Genki Ueno , from a large copper sink originally located in the Yuden.

View of living over dining. The living room of 10 tatami mats has a full-sized floor and a study room. It is furnished with contemporary art and gold leaf paper.
The lighting is from the time of its foundation. It is a gem with elaborate technical decorations such as works of art.
The wall that faces the former corridor on the right has been removed and is a replica of a modern fittings shop in line with the porch on the veranda. Actually, this arrangement creates asymmetry in the space, and it is a good space that can include the mass of many furniture and art pieces.
