The Junsei House
Designed for a couple interested in simplifying their lives and learning to live with less, The Junsei House was created with a holistic approach to designing architecture that is sustainable. The house’s spaces give one a feeling of completeness, eliminating the need for more things. Simple, efficient and quiet in design, the house is a reaction to today’s technology and offers a refuge in an ever changing, chaotic world. Located in an area once rich in fishing and logging and still supported by commuter ferry, the site is lush with trees. Respectful to the existing landscape and touching the ground minimally, the house is appropriate and compliments its surroundings rather than competing with it. Wishing to honor the existing site, all of the trees were left in place and excess excavation was limited to protect tree roots leaving only 18 feet in width and 80 feet in length for the house. Surrounded by trees and water, nature now becomes the house’s art. Instead of the typical design solutions with unobstructed views to the water, the central tree becomes dominant, and accentuates views and vistas by blocking some while slowly unveiling others as one’s journey to the water’s destination is created.
Working within a minimal budget and a simple material palette with close attention paid to details, the client was able to create more with less, resulting in a purer design and lifestyle. Producing little visual noise, the house is composed of a simple vernacular shape in which all programmatic elements were distilled down to their fundamental requirement. The relatively open floor plan and flexibility of spaces lends itself to a variety of uses, causing the resident to reevaluate how they live. Spaces can be occupied in different ways depending on seasonal conditions or social gatherings.
外部使用波纹金属侧板，而整个内部又天然木材胶合板拼接。现场搭建的门窗延续了简单的几何结构，使用平纹木材视觉上使窗户看起来像是雕刻而成。这个结构系统使内部的形成了一个纯粹简单的空间，有助于突出“白色盒子”和上面的阁楼空间。The Junsei House可持续性的设计不仅仅是物质选择或产品的问题，而是改变一个人的态度，以及研究如何改变居住者的生活习惯。
On the exterior corrugated metal siding is used while throughout the interior natural wood and plywood define space. The site built window system continues the simple vernacular geometry and the use of flat grain wood visually makes the windows appear as if they were carved from the skin. The structural system allowed the interior volume to be completely empty of structure creating a pure skin that helps to accentuate the white box containing the service elements and a loft space above. With The Junsei House, designing for sustainability is not only about material choices or products, but rather shifting one’s attitude, and examining how essential design elements can alter the living habits of the occupants.

The Lake House
Lake House是一个极简主义的住所，位于华盛顿州西雅图，由Suyama Peterson Deguchi设计。这座湖屋被设想成21世纪的静修之所——从对现代生活的期望中解脱出来，建在城市附近的湖边小屋里。该遗址是一块狭小的土地，紧紧地夹在现有的独户住宅之间。这些房子在网络上令人印象深刻，创造了对视觉隐私的需求。
The Lake House is a minimalist residence located in Seattle, Washington, designed by Suyama Peterson Deguchi. The Lake House was conceived as a 21st Century retreat – an escape from expectations of modern life to a lakefront cabin near the city. The site is a narrow plot of land tightly wedged between existing single-family houses. The houses have an imposing psence on the site creating a need for visual privacy.
The program allowed the design to be conceptually simplified into three components – a thick wall extruded from the topography, a low horizontal roof, and a volume for sleeping. The site conditions led us to carve multiple indoor/outdoor spaces into the topography – by filling some of the spaces with water we were able to expand the sense of the waterfront deeper into the property. The resulting spaces relieved the pssure for privacy from the waterfront exposure. A low roof provides a horizontal datum; a reference point to the sloping topography and a sense of open privacy from the neighbors.

As architects our goal is to create spaces that evoke a quiet, emotional response. We believe that the use of elemental forms and minimal means can result in architecture that has nuance, depth and richness.
