Interior of this house was designed based on concepts of interiority that is an integral part of a larger architectural and landscape design. Design of interior is not dismissed just as a mere “Interior Design”. It is conceived as “interiority of architecture”, as a philosophically significant element that connects human body inside of a building to the building itself, and to the landscape outside.
While Zen garden and tea house of this project were designed with abstract logics of geometry not resembling a conventionally familiar form, the interior of this house was designed based on critical reinterpretation of a conventional, generic interior space.
Scale and arrangements of furniture and household products were based on “ordinary” arrangements of them typically expected in most generic interior space. Yet materiality of interior wall, floor, ceiling and furniture were selected in such ways to question the boundary between real and not real—approaching to a space of Hyperreality.
This sense of Hyperreality is made by white rubber floor, grey felt stool, coffee table with popcorn texture paint finish, cabinet with shiny Day-Glo pink finish, wall with pink felt finish, plywood sofa, ceiling mural with bubble-shaped reflective sheets, chandelier made with transparent plastic boards.
