Gré Square House

Large openings in the corrugated metal facades of this square building in Shizuoka, Japan, frame the views of the neighborhood. The structure consists of a store on the ground floor and a residence on the upper floor.

The Tokyo Suzuki Architects studio designed Gré Square House for a customer who runs a company that sells clothes and other products made from natural materials. The ground floor of the building is occupied by a shop and related service areas, including a kitchen, a bathroom and a closet. The client’s mother lives in a compact but bright apartment upstairs, which features an open-plan living area flanked by a bedroom and a bathroom.

The studio led by architects Hisako Yamamura and Kosuke Suzuki designed the building as a simple parallelepiped perforated by large openings that allow plenty of light and natural air to reach the interior. The wooden frame structure is externally covered with corrugated metal, with wooden window frames.

The shop on the ground floor has a window next to a path that crosses a gravel garden from the road to the glazed entrance. Sliding doors located in two of the facades can retract to open the space outwards. The interior has simple independent furniture and exposed beams that complete the wooden doors that hide the kitchen and the closet.
