Makoto Tanijiri Ai Yoshida House in Yoyogi-Uehara
Setting the environment from the perspectives of both graphic design and architecture, they came to design a process that an architect could not achieve alone. By planning the home-office setting for work and life take to place simultaneously, while maintaining a certain distance from each other, the two spheres separated despite being under the same roof. In all, a house that internalizes the urban experience was realized.
The house is a complete a three-story wooden frame, with basement. The exterior wall is treated with resin mortar waterproofing, out of one end of which the entrance opening is cut out, formed with exposed glass-paned doors, while cutting the inward line of sight just enough to maintain privacy. The stairs from basement to third floor connect with a meandering flow, changing the view with every curve.
