Love architecture and structures. Love it. I definitely think outside the box on this too. I have ideas in my head no ones done. Design is the compliment to the structure. It all works together to create one huge visual art. I believe in making your home, or whatever it is, a big art piece that expresses who you are...
I’ve been looking at a lot of contemporary Japanese residential design lately, and have become extremely interested in the breakdown of the more traditional boundaries in the home. Interstitial spaces and flexibility have become dominant themes, blurring preconceived notions of public vs private, interior vs exterior, and urban vs domestic. The result can often be viewed as a “home within a home,” in which the activities within dictate the function of the space, rather than the opposite. In Hosaka’s design above, the owners have the ability to adjust just how much of the house is inside or outside, creating a constantly expanding or decreasing interior envelope depending on their needs.
