MDS Design Group constructed the Okazaki House Design by MDS as a one-story building with a shed-type roof that extends down on the sides. The client added this structure to their existing lot as a dwelling for their parents. This practice is becoming more prevalent in Japanese culture.
The structure of the roof was made with cedar lumber and laid over beams that are alternately spaced out. This is the secret to its cool ceiling interiors. Its windows perfectly fit the spaces where the roofline is exposed. There is a central courtyard that brings the element of nature right into the space.
