Hopscotch House by Hiramoto Design Studio

Hopscotch House is a minimalist residence located in Saitama, Japan, designed by Hiramoto Design Studio. This family who had lived individually decided they wanted to live together. As such, the architects wanted to design a space that allowed these people who were used to living alone to commune and seek privacy when needed. The building is divided into segmented parts, each with their own function. The layout of the home is similar to a hopscotch court. Since these divided parts were joined with shifting positions, the empty spaces between were used as gardens and a pool. The pattern of volumes create refreshing rhythms for the residents.
