House in Koyoen by Tomohiro Hata Architect and Associates

House in Koyoen is a minimal residence located in Koyoen, Japan, designed by Tomohiro Hata Architect and Associates. The surrounding area is a landscape in which a complex retaining wall made of finely constructed slopes and winding roads are intertwined, and life is woven into it. There are many retaining walls of unknown history, and it feels like this place a part of the transition space of the city. By holding the wooden arches made in this way back to back and combining them in a cross-shaped pillar shape, the studio developed a structure that repeats freely. The form of the frame that creates a relaxed space by assembling small members becomes multi-axis coordinates that connect the flow of the road, expands the space in recognition into the expanse of the city, and melts into a series of stretchy slopes.
