ABOUT

This house was planned for a married couple in their 40s living in a quiet residential area in Chiba of Kanto region. Three boxes were randomly stacked,and the resulting margins were included in the indoor area. It is like being outside,while actually being inside. The concept behind it is living in the same kind of spaciousness you would find in a park. In addition,some of the outdoor space is used to make up part of the living room,further blurring the lines between "inside" and "outside".

ABOUT

While planning first began 4 years ago, the great earthquake of March 11th led to a large shift in our concept. After recreating the concept from scratch with the property owner, we spent a large proportion of time sharing ideas on lifestyle and what a home really means. We gave ourselves the grand goal of not simply creating a home, but a base for life, a shelter, a playground, a hobby space, garden, in other words, a place that encompasses all of lifes pleasures and necessities.

ABOUT

It is very close to the Great Buddha and Hase Temple in Kamakura. There is a constant influx of people during the daytime and on weekends, and after the evening, it is enveloped in silence, with not a soul in sight. On the lower floor, where almost no light reaches, we created a Japanese space that makes the most of the gloom, a meditative space where one can escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. The upper floor is designed to be a space of "movement", a place for a happy family and that allows you to feel the ever-changing nature of time.
