“I renovated a room of an old Japanese apartment into a flat for new lifestyle by inserting several simple wooden boxy volumes.”
The room is located in a boundary between an old town and a developing district around Tokyo. From this room on the top floor of the building, we see a scenery like Rear Window from Hitchcock below.
This flat was planned for a young family with a 2 year-old child. Considering the change of lifestyle due to child’s growth within a limited floor space, I installed corners, blind spots and niches with boxy volumes in order to enrich a variety of space.
