As the most important point in the brief from the client was to design a space adjusted to both private and public use, the architects of FORM/Kouichi Kimura Architects aimed to identify a linkage between the two. They realized it in a living space that expands toward outside in terms of visual and sensory aspects.
„When opening the entrance door of the symmetrically designed building, a courtyard surrounding the living room stretches right in front. The living room that also serves as the Yoga classroom has two openings; it can be used as one unified space together with the courtyard when the sliding doors are wide opened,” the architects share. One of the very special detail of the space is the frosted glass fitted in the sculptural-shaped making the light thrown into the room softer. It also gently illuminates the courtyard at night, creating peaceful relaxing atmosphere.
