The prefab modular Japanese style Zenkei villa or country house (Japanese for, the entire form, the perfect form) is designed with only one goal in mind, connecting nature and living space. The Zenkei villa or country house is designed in a way the construction actually consists of two separate cocoons. The inner cocoon can be opened or closed by means of double insulated translucent shojii style (Japanese latticework) sliding doors. The outher cocoon or engawa (covered balcony), is also enclosed by sliding doors with double insulated glazing, which can be opened to invite nature into our living space. This combination of interconnected "cocoons" ensures a very high insulation rating. Through the use of translucent and "honest" materials like wood and glass we have created an extremely bright, open and natural environment. Because of the double roof the Zenkei villa features fairly high ceilings which benefit the sence of spaciousness in this design.
The Japanese style Zenkei country house is based on an ancient Japanese theme and successful concept, but constructed in modern design with robust materials using modern time techniques. The Zenkei villa is modular designed. This means that the construction consists of several interconnected modules or parts of 900 x 600 cm. each, equipped with a so-called buffer zone or engawa. The building can therefore easily be extended. The resulting space is easely modifiable to your needs and wishes.
Zinc or Copper
By applying traditional Japanese ceramic roof tiles, the Zenkei villa has an overall Japanese look and feel. It is of course possible to fit the Zenkei villa with other interesting, less traditional roofing materials such as modern roof tiles, zinc or even copper. A zinc or copper roof has a very long lifespan, gains beauty over the years and gives the building a totally exclusive, luxurious touch. Our Japanese style villa's, pavilions and bungalows can be build to order in various wood types and configurations. Obviously Yokoso Japanese Gardens only uses certified materials of the highest quality.
