‘Warehouse’ by local architecture firm shinichi ogawa and associates is a single volume residence with an enclosed courtyard. Distilled to its simplest form, main theme of the house is a ‘one room space’ to create loose boundaries. The design incorporates subtle level changes: the ‘wet’ programs such as the kitchen and bathroom are lowered from the living area, while the washitsu (Japanese-style room) and office are placed half a level lower to the entry way. Another addition is the series of functional furniture arranged like a barcode throughout the length of the space. Looking to the outside, the expansive courtyard on the south side of the house is enclosed by a frosted glass fence, while the interior is capable of opening up completely to the outside by a series of sliding doors. For more detail about the house floor plan, layout and room arrangement you can see the technical drawing at the end of this post. Photos by toshiyuki yano
