Yoshihiro Yamamoto Architect Atelier:

The site is located at the very end of the residential section developed in the 1970s in Nara, Japan. There are homogeneous prefabricated houses in one side, and ancient Japanese-styled houses and rich nature spread in another side. It is the typical site of Nara. We planned a new residence for young husband and wife. First, we classified various spaces into two. The opened space with free usage, such as the living, the dining room, kitchen, and loft, was unified by a white volume. The closed space with specific functions, such as soundproof studio, a bathroom, a utility room, and a bedroom, was unified by a black volume. Second, we put the black volume to the road side, the white volume was set some distance back from it. Third, by combining two volumes, the residence could have a small courtyard and was able to gain a wind, light, and a view.

Via @oma.eu: Before the #PradaFW17 Men’s and Women’s show at #MMFW last night. In the current moment – when issues of simplicity and essentiality are becoming increasingly relevant – AMO and PRADA felt the need to go back to basics, to abandon the construction of hyper-realistic and fully immersive sets in favor of a modest and domestic design. @prada #OMAnews #prada #milan #design Photo: @valefans
