Today we will show you a beautiful house in Ohno, Japan, a project by Airhouse Design Office. This place is great. The layout, furniture, colors, the wood and white combination, everything works perfectly. The house is simple, modern and really cozy. Certainly a great place to live.
Make sure to check out Airhouse Design Office website for further information about this and other inspiring projects. See you next week :)
Description from the architects: A piece of land in a Japanese persimmon (kaki) orchard was offered as the project area for a residential house. As the client wanted wide open spaces with high ceilings, a structure composed of a large roof set on top of seven thick columns was used. To secure copious glass windows, private areas are located inside the columns while intervals between columns are designated as living, dining and kitchen spaces. With this composition, only the sky and the kaki orchard are visible from the inside, giving the area an open feeling while the kaki trees provide a sense of privacy from the outside world, all of which makes for a relaxed atmosphere in the interior areas. As the landscape transforms with the changing of the kaki seasons, a generous living space is produced in the house nestled among the kaki trees.
We found this house at ArchDaily.
