Private House, Kunitachi by Sawada Hashimura Studio

Private House, Kunitachi is a minimal residence located in Tokyo, Japan, designed by Sawada Hashimura Studio. Sawada Hashimura is a Tokyo-based architectural practice founded by Wataru Sawada and Yuichi Hashimura. The basis of the studio is the fascination and faith for atmosphere created by physical construction with a thoughtful process. The practice is intended to hold that quality and provoke dialogues between people and place. The architectural design are driven by critical research process with respects for environmental context, precedents to learn and the potential values of given conditions of the projects. The home features an exposed grid of structural timber that is visually uncovered throughout the ceilings and furniture. Custom furniture allowed the architects to maximize the space, as well as maintain a consistent design language.
