Obihiro, Hokkaido, Japan - Under Contruction

In Obihiro, Japan, Oshatz is currently completing an addition to the Miyasaka Residence which was originally completed in Japan in 1998. The new addition is intended as a separate pavilion for entertaining guests and includes a dedicated kitchen and a long dining room inder a curved glue-lam roof. The addition fits into the radial plan of the original residence and adopts the same approach to materiality. Like the Miyasaka Residence, many components are fabricated in the United States and shipped to Japan. The curved glue-lam beams were fabricated in Portland Oregon, as is the cabinetry and custom furniture. The structure has a very short build time and should be completed imminently.
