masahiro harada and mao harada of mount fuji architects studio have been awarded this year’s g-mark japan good design award for their kiraku-no-ie prefabricated housing. demonstrating how the use of CLT, a cross-laminated wood panel material, can benefit the construction of low-cost, simple structures, the project seeks to increase the product’s demand and ensure its stable and inexpensive supply in japan.produced by japanese company aqura, the kiraku-no-ie houses are made almost entirely out of CLT, making a case for its high heat and sound insulating properties. mount fuji architects studio has developed the prefab constructions as an easy-to-build example of how the material can be used. ‘raw wood made in japan can be used, and the government actively encourages its use,’ explains the tokyo-based firm, ‘being an excellent material, it has rarely been used for ordinary houses due to its high cost.’
