This family house is located about 3 km south of central Sapporo near the foothills of Mt. Maruyama in Japan. White Court is a residential project completed by Yamauchi Architects and Associates in 2020. This house design is prioritized for family and community connections.
This house is surrounded by single-family homes, mid-rise apartment buildings, high-rise condominiums, shrines, and temples. It stands on a slightly irregular 200 m2 lot among this development’s jumble in Hokkaido.
It is a family house that was built for a couple with their two university-aged children. The aim of this project is to separate and link the living room, kitchen, dining room, bedrooms, garage, and exterior courtyard flexibly to match the family’s needs.
