The home, designed by Japanese architect Fumihito Ohashi for a young family of three, is in Komono-town, Mie-district, Mie Prefecture. The site commands a view of the Suzuka mountains to the northwest, and to the east spread the rice fields of the peaceful suburbs of a low density residential area. The north and east faces are road boundaries.
This home was designed in consideration of the cat who will be living with them, who enjoys seeking out cozy spots. Rather than defining lifestyles based on the names and functions of rooms, isn't it better for people to seek out comfortable places and stay there? The possibilities of such places were studied for this project.
These rooms, which are certainly not large, and have a variety of individual characters, create a relaxing place like the lair of an animal, and can also join together to make one large room.
