House in Buzen
It is a perfect playground for kids at a small space in a town, such as narrow paths between houses, the edge of a gardens, the back of a shed, under a floor, or an open lots. Rather than a park or garden that was built to be played in, we wanted to make a house with a courtyard that would become a playground naturally. We designed the residence with not only collecting rooms but also producing some structures in the space. Paths are covered by a glass roof weave between the disconnected structures to create an interior space that feels exterior, a private space that feels public, a hall that feels like an avenue. In that space the children can run around, you can enjoy a breeze while you eat, read under the sun, and fall asleep watching the stars. There is a charm beyond imagination there, beyond normal home life.
