The house is built in a quiet residential area of ??Tokyo, on a narrow and long plot. The width of the house of 6 meters, length – 27. The house is raised by 3 meters from the ground, so that on clear days offers wonderful views of Mount Fuji.
Since the family of the customer spends the bulk of the day in the living room, this room is located on the top floor, which allows you to enjoy the view. Minimalistic design and a parabolic ceiling of the second floor are the hallmarks of the building. Spot color contrast with the undulating white surroundings, making the space more dynamic.
Such a “three dimensional” ceiling height level which varies throughout the floor, causing conflicting feelings of “tension” and “relaxed” and leaves the impression of infinite space. Thus, even when considering a room with a fixed position, variations in the surface causes the sensation of movement, which unconsciously leads the observer straight through and beyond the room, creating an impression of infinite space.
Usually the floors and walls delineate the boundaries of internal space, but in this house this function performs a parabolic ceiling.
