“It is a renovation of the wooden house built in 1976. This house is the atelier and residence of artists. They required the place for creation and exhibition of art works. The number of small rooms is combined to flexible spaces rationally.
The living / dining / tatami space which faces the south is illuminated up by indirect lighting of a ceiling. In the back side of it, there is a small room for the display and reading. This space has short walls on the ceiling and both sides installed lightings. In this humble space, I planned various lighting so that there is an art installation.
Creation of the artist is carried out in a quiet time, and art works are assimilated into daily scape. In this space made up of sensitive details and strict proportions, organic plant material and stands out, to give the space a rich contrast.
