Homes That They Inspire: a House Yard in Japan

Normally, when designing a House, the architect is always of linking the environment with construction, in such a way that there is a dialogue between Forms and spaces of the building and that surrounds you.

However, sometimes there is nothing around that we want the least and the best solution is to deny the word environment, such a dialogue become a monologue and designa House patio whose relationship with the outside is just its negation.

On that basis this is born minimalist house designed by Shinichi Ogawa & Associates in the Japanese city of Okinawa. A three meters high wall surrounds a plot of little less than 200 square meters which can be accessed through a small side door. We see that we are behind it.

From the entrance leads to a large multifunctional hall that highlights a large white bar that runs along its 18 metres in length. The kitchen, which we see in the first place, the toilet of the bathroom and in the background area, an area of study and work is located in the.

Lighting is a mixture between diffuse light emanating from behind the bar and the daylight that seeps between the openings of the Cabinet that separates the Hall in the main area and that the time is the toilet and shower, among other things.

Once we left the Hall, we arrived at a unique stay in which the rest of the House uses take place. A dining area, a lounge area and another bedroom. All of them directly linked to the large patio that illuminates them and whose only decoration are a pair of very minimalist shrubs.

The dining table is made in three pieces of solid wood and simple lines, accompanied by four popular series 7 of Arne Jacobsen chairs. In the lounge area we find a LC3 sofa in black leather, a design by the famous Le Corbusier, and a sound system is the only entertainment we.

At the end of the room there are two beds with linen with an also white table between, forming the sleeping area and that is what has “ view ” to shrubs.

One of the things that most missed me is that television there is no, but something that is becoming increasingly more people surrender, never it’s more seeing a good movie. To do so, and as caprice, there is a hidden system that It allows you to project images on the wall of the courtyard, and in which we see Keira Knightley in one of those films of era who so much likes to interpret.

In all other respects, than usual in the minimalist houses: walls, white ceilings and windows hidden carpentry, Cabinet handles and absence of superfluous decorative elements.

Just a couple of interesting details; on the one hand the soil, which is not Park as it is usual in Japanese houses, but some large tiles in grey, probably motivated by the desire that the pavement was the same in court than in the interior of the House and also to perform other detail, this small pond only a few centimeters deep that accompanies the dining area.

Is not the most impressive minimalist house I’ve seen, but I like this great stay illuminated by light that will strain in the courtyard and the way to separate the noble area of the kitchen and the bathroom. That Yes, not suitable for which we like to look out the window to see it cooking in the neighborhood.
