* “House S” – A space where families can gather like a “veranda” in the city center – *
A complete renovation plan to create a peaceful living environment in harmony with nature in a quiet low-rise apartment complex surrounded by greenery and cobblestone pavement, even though it is located in the heart of the city in the Motoazabu district of Minato Ward.

In this house, we felt that the atrium at the entrance characterizes the space, and we wanted to create a three-dimensional spatial experience within the free plan. By designing the ceilings of each room to have curved surfaces and slopes, we created a rhythm to the spatial experience.

After traveling all over the world, the client built a second home in Niseko, Hokkaido in 2020. Afterwards, they sought a home in the city center where they could feel a sense of unity with nature, and ended up in a low-rise apartment complex in Motoazabu.

Based on the request for a space similar to the “veranda” that I felt familiar with while traveling in Japan, I planned a living environment where I could be in a natural state by maximizing the light from the windows and the connection to the terrace. The interior materials are simple, and the space is expanded through natural light and a lighting plan. We created a space where we can draw a loose connection, like a landscape.

Starting from the keyword “engawa”, we created a space that evokes the concept of space and time embodied in Japanese tea room architecture in an urban apartment.
