House in AmagiEdit profile
Japanese firm atelier cube has recently completed the 'house in amagi', a single-family detached home in Fukuoka, Japan. Bordered by several cherry trees, the owner desired an atmosphere which encouraged enjoyment of these garden elements from each room inside the dwelling. An unsystematic grid creates a strategic arrangement of internal partitions to divide the volume into spaces. Window cut-outs within each wall allow for unobstructed views to windows on opposing sides of the structure from the furthest distance within the volume. The residents may move a chair throughout the interior between their favorite spots similar to the free circulation which could occur outdoors within a yard. projecting from the floor plan, a lip has been retained beneath the rectilinear voids creating a support for shelves to hold plants or double as impromptu seating for children.
