Located in Kochi Prefecture Japan and conjured up by Container Design it is this distinct feature that protects the home from on gusty days even while ensuring the ambiance inside is left undisturbed.
Yet both these elements are carefully balanced as a cloak of green with transplanted prairie ecosystem on the roof and a wonderful garden adds the eco-sensitive tinge to this family residence.
Simplicity often produces best results in the world of interior design and this holds true while planning for a smart rear extension as well. Nestled in a lovely neighborhood of Melbourne the has been given a modern facelift by Drawing Room Architecture even while keeping the street façade of the house completely untouched.
It is the lower floor of this family home that contains the living area kitchen dining and pantry along with a restroom and additional storage space. On the top floor one finds the bedrooms and bathrooms as the demarcation between public and private space is well-defined.
The cantilevered frame of the house allows it to float gently above the landscape with the bedrooms carefully hidden in the rear. Large glass windows and sweeping glass doors complete a relaxing retreat that pays fitting tribute to Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s original creation.
